2020 DRAFT:Leath is one of those pitchers who could very easily return to college for another season despite putting on a show at the Round Rock Classic earlier this spring. He's an athletic 6-foot-1, 180-pounder, who has some versatility as a pitcher — he can come out of the bullpen or he can start. Leath was terrific early in the season, showing a hard-nosed approach with a nasty sinker at 92-95 mph, and touching as high as 96-97 this season. He can throw the sinker on either side of the plate for strikes. He also shows excellent feel for an 83-84 mph hard curveball with some good depth, while his cutter/slider is an above-average pitch at 87-88. Right handed hitters have a particularly tough time making solid contact against the offering. He will also show an average changeup in the mid-80s. Leath tallied 29 strikeouts and just five walks in 18.2 innings, so his track record outside of junior college isn't lengthy, but in the short stint he had this spring, it was mighty impressive (4-0, 1.45 ERA, 0.88 WHIP, .167 OPPBA). It will be interesting to see where Leath winds up in a few weeks, but he shows top five round talent.
