The Dixie State commit has made the most improvement of any pitcher in the state, since I first saw him over a year ago. Year ago he was 81-84 and weighed 170 lbs. But his velo has shown a steady climb each quarter of the year. An Area Code team alum, Carroll now has a FB that is 88-91 and reached 93 during indoor workouts this past winter. The CB 73-74 has a high spin of 2507 and is an OH 12 to 6 variety with considerable biting depth. Carroll shows the ability to land the pitch for a K and also bury it for swing and misses. The CH 77-80 has the right differential spacing off the FB and has late fade with mild bottom, but can kill the spin at 1885 and the pitch should compliment into a solid 3 pitch mix, when he arrives on the St. George campus. Look for Carroll to draw MLB scout attention as he was the feature arm for the scouts who were in attendance at our event.

A West Coast Games and Area Code participant, Carroll recently a day after the WCG’s committed to Dixie State U in the WAC and had another school with virtually the same offer and chose the warm weather of Dixie State to take his talents too. A tall wiry 6-6 200 kid that reminds me of former MLB RHP, Brandon McCarthy at the same stage of development. Features a tall high kick to delivery and gets into his legs well. Just needs overall body mass to come with added strength to his lower ½, to see the mechanics translate into future velo and maintain that velo. The FB can fluctuate from 83-87 at the West Coast Games or 87-91 at the AC tryout! There is definitely projection here and an added 20-30 Lbs at maturity in college, one could see some crazy jumps on the radar gun. A separator with Carroll is the CB 68-73 and it shows big shape with bottom type depth and a spin rate of 2486, which is 2nd in the state, next to Brayden Marx. The CH 67-71 is thrown a bit slow and needs to speed the arm up. This is a pitching coaches dream to work with and it will be fun to see where he ends up next spring physically as well as his stuff.

A tall drink of water that reminds me of former MLB pitcher, Brandon McCarthy at the same age and with the same velocity. When McCarthy was in JUCO, he was topping at 89 and when he was fully mature in the big leagues, he would sink the ball at 94. I believe this kid has the same type ceiling. An eye test type arm, that had an event best 87 mph max FB with a CB 67-71 and an event best CB spin rate of 2457. The FB needs added spin, but he doesn’t create all that is wanted, as it doesn’t need to be as high as one would like, as his FB sinks, thus the lesser spin. He has some deception with a tall, steep plane of attack and angle to the plate, making for a ground ball type pitcher that will be tough for hitters to elevate and get the ball in the air.

An XXL very tall frame with big hands and feet, coupled with very long legs and a high waisted look. The frame has considerable room to fill and get stronger as he matures. Could be a late bloomer physically. Reminds me of former MLB RHP-Brandon McCarthy at the same stage of development. From a tall address, he takes a rock step in front to turn and pivot, while utilizing a semi hand pump for rhythm and timing. He breaks his hands high at the face and creates a fuller fluid arm swing and gets his arm up and in the power position above the shoulder at foot strike, with ext. out front. The FB 81-84 as he adds size/strength and weight gains, should take the jump over the next year. The CB 67-70 has medium depth and solid TQ shape with the right differential off the FB. The CH 75-78 is a bit too hard now, yet shows some fade with FB arm speed. As his FB jumps, the CH will space enough to be an effective 3rd pitch in time. Intriguing body, mechanics, projectability and ability to throw K’s. Will definitely be following him in his journey.
