Lyon has made huge improvements with his FB velocity and not only is he an athletic MIF, and one that can play at the collegiate level as a MIF, it’s the right arm on the mound that captures your attention. His father, former MLB RHP, Brandon Lyon was very similar on the mound at the same age as I had the fortune to see his father in HS and scout him as a collegian, before embarking on a 12 year MLB career. Isaac has always been able to command the baseball and has solid avg run and sink to the FB, but he has really gained added arm strength and it has developed in a steady arc. As a freshman he was 78-82, and then as a sophomore, he was in the mid 80’s. This past October/November he was 84-87, and showing added depth and bite to his CB 72-74, but after taking the winter off and being among the starting 5 on his varsity basketball team, Lyon came out in the early stages of the spring in the 86-89 range, but as the season began to take shape, Isaac was consistently 87-91 in the 2-3 times I saw him. The CB ticked up to 74-76 and the CH was 78-81 with consistent fade and late bottom in the K zone. During his teams run to the 4A state title, Lyon threw in the quarter final game and pitched a 7 inn 2 hit SHO gem, sitting 88-89, touching 91. Not to be denied, he came back on 3 days rest and gave his team 4 strong inns without his best stuff and willed his way through the outing, keeping his team in the lead at 3-2, before handing it off to another prospect, as Snow Canyon captured the 4A state title. Lyon has a couple of offers already, and is betting on himself and does want to go out as a position player, but with the bloodlines, projection on the mound with the potential for 3 solid avg pitches in time, he will make someone very happy with his bulldog competitiveness and ability to mix and match pitches for quality K’s.

Previously written up as a RHP, we got to see the offensive/defensive part of his two way profile, as he was taking a break from the mound due to getting ready for basketball season. Isaac the son of longtime MLB RHP, Brandon Lyon shows the same build as his Father at the same stage of development. As a SS, there's athleticism and some educated feet and fields from the ground up. The feet are active and live, with plenty of forward momentum in shortening his throws. The arm plays and the ball exits his hand clean with something on it, while hitting the 1B’man in the chest. Able to throw from multiple arm angles with accuracy. From the offensive end, he’s made big strides, and he’s added strength with the bat. Gets separation with a short stride and soft landing, while hitting off a firm front side. The stroke is online with some uphill, yet is compact and short to the ball with some one and two hand finish, depending on where the pitch location is and what he’s trying to do with the baseball. He does need to get loaded into his back hip and utilize his backside better, which will even increase what he brings to the table with an EV of 95.7. A definite two way type that has two years of HS left to make some noise and the belief is that he will do both with the bat and his arm.

A med lean even prop athletic build that has bloodlines. Isaac is the son of former MLB RHP-Brandon Lyon (13 Yrs). Was off to a fast start on the mound with 11K’s thru 9 inns of work before the shutdown in the spring. Plays for the highly competitive Team Utah 2022, and has really taken a step in a year, going from the upper 70’s with the FB, to the mid 80’s at present. Features a NWU med balanced kick to delivery and repeats for the most part and has an idea. The arm action is short, quick and has proper arc and acceleration through a HTQ slot. The FB 84-86 has mild late arm side life and is around the plate. The CB 72-73 is slvy with TQ tilt with flashes of solid avg at times. Chance to be a weapon in time, as his body matures and gains added velo to the FB. CH 78-79 shows abv avg potential with feel and late sink. A pitcher now, as his father was at the same stage, before the velo came in college. Uncommitted at present, yet has D1 interest. One to definitely follow with bloodlines, pitchability, a proj build and quick arm.
