2021 MLB DraftJustice’s emergence as a rock in the bullpen was one of the major keys to N.C. State's season, as he blossomed into one of college baseball's premier stoppers to help lead the Wolfpack to Omaha. The 6-foot-4 lefthander has always tantalized with his arm strength, but spotty command held him back earlier in his career. Now a fourth-year junior, Justice has become a confident, battle-tested warrior who doesn’t panic if he walks a guy or gives up a run. He still doesn’t have pinpoint control, but it has improved dramatically (74-25 K-BB in 59.2 IP), and he has presence along with putaway stuff. He also bounces back well, as he has shown he can sit comfortably at 93-95 mph two days in a row, and his heater plays up thanks to its elite spin rate (2500-2700 rpm), giving it good carry through the zone. He also has good feel for a solid slider at 80-82, and his 3/4 delivery has some herky-jerk funk with a double-clutch leg kick that adds deception. The stuff has never been in question, but his ability to utilize it has come a long way.


Six-foot-4, 180 pound long bodied lefty with a deceptive herky, jerky delivery. One piece arm action with a big wrap in back. Jerks arm through to a low three-quarter release. Presents a tough look and at-bat for left-handed hitters with a fastball up to 93 mph, a fringe 81-83 mph slider and a low-spin (1650 rpm) 81 mph changeup. His control comes and goes due to his delivery/arm action. Just profiles perfectly as a left on left specialist, but due to a recent change in MLB rules with a three-batter minimum, will this role exist in three years? (Seifert)


Pitched at 91-93 with his fastball. Mostly flat and on-plane from a low three-quarters release point with much jerk to the motion, a short stride and inconsistent release point. Worked his curveball 77-79 mph with 2/8 sweeping action. Well below average changeup at 88 mph; too firm and flat. Overall, has a chance for an average fastball and curveball, but his in-zone command is too loose and very hittable over fat part of the plate.


Longer lanky projectable frame with room to add to as he matures. Has a compact simple delivery with balance throughout. Athletic on the mound. Sound arm actions throwing from a three-quarter slot and pitches with regular effort. Falls toward third base side through finish. Fastball shows later arm-side run with occasional sink as well. Topped out at 88 mph in his first inning working 84-87 in the first. Only second time on the mound this year, ranged from 82-87 throughout his five innings of work. Breaking ball has 1/7 shape, tight rotation, and depth to the pitch.


Justice is a lanky lefty that throws from a three-quarters arm slot with a drop and drive delivery. He has a quick, loose arm, generating velocity with normal effort. Shoulders are closed and downhill, lands on line and falls off as finishes. His fastball was 83-86, touching 87, with late run. Hard 2/8 curveball that was 68. Showed the ability to field his position.


Justice has a tall, lanky frame and throws from a high three-quarters arm slot with a tall and fall delivery. He has a short, loose arm action and a lightning-quick arm that generates easy velocity. His shoulders are level and closed and he lands closed before falling off hard as he finishes. His crossfire delivery made it very hard for hitters to pick him up. Justice pounded the zone with has fastball and touched 86, he worked at 81-85 with sink and a bit of run to armside. He threw a big, 1/7 breaking curveball with decent armspeed that he threw for strikes at the bottom of the zone, running 66-69. His changeup was straight and was 76.
