The 6-foot-2, 175-pound RHP jumped on the radar over a year ago at the Northern Utah Open and has been a staple attendee at all Utah invite events. A Future Games alum, Brotherson has the classic next level look physically and does things EZ from an operational standpoint. On the radar with D1 schools, Brotherson is command and pitch ability over velocity right now and that’s the ideal barometer to measure and project his 3 pitch arsenal. At the State Games over the weekend, Brotherson reached an 86.7 mph high with his typical low-effort, clean delivery, although he had a scare a half dozen pitches into his 2 inning planned stint. I noticed him shaking his fingers and on the next pitch, the FB velo dropped significantly. I asked if he was okay and he said he felt a slight pop in his elbow. I immediately removed him from the game and it was discovered a day later that he has a slight tear in his UCL and will be undergoing TJ surgery. The timing is that of Oklahoma State and former Gunnison HS pitcher Janzen Keisel in that, he will miss his junior year, but the timetable will allow him to hopefully come back 100% as a senior and I don’t believe it will prevent him from garnering and gaining back the attention he has been getting. We wish Blake all the best in his road to recovery and we will be monitoring his rehab and comeback over the next calendar year.

Positional Profile: RHP/1B Blake is a 15 yr old, 2025 w/considerable upside for physical growth, weight and strength gains. Shows feel for 3 pitches and works the FB/CB in the zone for consistent K's. The type of arm that you should see 2-3 mph increase each year in HS, and should be a 90+ arm within 2 years, and breakout as a senior with big velocity. Can only dream and can't wait to follow him and see his progress every 3-4 months as the years tick by.
Body: 6-2, 155-pounds. Lean, lanky w/a proportioned athletic look. What the look like at 15 yrs old
Delivery: Simple side side and he rocks into a flexible high kick to delivery. Stays online and directional to the plate, and lands firm on a soft toe/flat foot. Gets okay ext now, and finishes into a 3/4 finish out front and is somewhat upright after release and follow through.
Arm Action: RH. Clean takeaway from a medium high glove break. Fluid in back and rotates his arm stroke into the power slot w/a clean arc through a HTQ release point.
FB: T83.6, 82-83 mph. FB has carry and is firm and to the naked eye, he appears to be throwing harder than regestered. The ball exits clean and with the rising life, it jumps on hitters T2324, 2201 average rpm.
CB: 69-70 mph. Controlled with feel to land and hit the mitt. The pitch is a K and he has easy TQ tilt and medium depth. As he throws harder with maturity and the spin increases as well as the velo, the pitch will add depth and harder bite through the zone. T2049, 1998 average rpm.
CH: 72-75 mph. Threw a few that faded with fair depth and bottom. Needs to throw more and gain added confidence. T1617, 1574 average rpm.

9/15/22

Without question the most interesting prospect of the event goes to Brotherson! Featuring a 6-2 165 frame that is what they look like to build from, into a future 190 Lb prospects body. Blake has the type of athleticism in his delivery to throw much harder over the next 3 years of HS baseball. A classic simple rock step and a turn into a flexible balanced high kick and reaches out well and lands on a firm front toe at foot strike and stays directional through release to the plate. The arm is very loose and biomechanically sound. There’s no wasted effort and his head stays still, and he pounded the K zone with all three pitches in a FB, landed CB and fading CH. Advanced for his age and showing abv avg feel to pitch, the FB 83-85 now has carry through the zone and threw K after K, while spinning the FB at 2324 rpm’s. The CB 70-71 has tilt and depth w/feel to land and bury the pitch with ease. It was impressive to see the feel with the pitch and it tunneled well off his FB. The spin should increase as it’s at 2049 now, but with added arm strength and further physical development, there is plenty enough ease to his operation that it’s easy to see a 6-8 and even 8-10 mph increase in the FB as well as potentially 7-8 mph more in the CB. The CH 72-74 (spin of 1617) while killing spin, is spaced well and all 3 pitches create some tough spacing coverage for hitters to cover during an AB. Blake passes the eye test physically with his crystal ball projection and what the future holds for this kid. Already receiving D1 interest off this 1st look and video posted to social media. The future is bright and he will be getting an invite to the All-State Games in late October.
