2/14/18 Mid Atlantic ProCase

One of the bigger questions heading into this spring is how will the St. John's product be this year now coming back after his arm surgery. Looking at Steinberg this weekend, you almost thought he didn't miss a beat. Still aggressive on the mound, attacking nature. He sat 86-88 on the day, but that should continue to climb as the season progresses. He showed a natural feel for his command attacking the zone. At the plate its strength to the middle of the field with ability to get his hands extended and drive the baseball. Sound actions in the infield with accurate throws. Still uncommitted after not signing due to his injury, some lucky program is going to get a talented prospect who should make some sort of immediate impact.

9.29.16 - Showed nice balanced at the plate with strong hands. Whipped barrel through zone during batting practice. Aggressive swings with pull side power potential at plate. Life on throws and sound actions from both infield and outfield. Athletic...On the mound, he has a slight stab after hand separation then goes into an athletic arm action with fast arm speed. Nice pace throughout delivery. Great lower half involvement and backside drive. Sat 86-89 on the day in his inning of work. Fastball showed later life at times. Breaking ball was 72-75 with 11/5 shape and later break and nice depth and tight rotation.

4.26.16:  Steinberg has an athletic frame and throws from a three-quarters arm slot with a tall and fall delivery. He has a short, lightning quick arm action and generates velocity with high effort. His shoulders are uphill and closed as he strides to a closed landing. His fastball had late run, sitting 81-85 and touching 87. He was working at the lower end of that range in the sixth inning, but could still get an 85 when he wanted it. His changeup had heavy run and was thrown with good arm speed, running 76-78. He threw a sharp 12/6 curveball that he slowed his arm down on at times, running 60-67.

Steinberg has a filled out 6-2 frame that is athletic. He was up as high as 89 during the fall of 2015.
