Byhre has showed signs this summer of harnessing his premium arm strength, which has translated to a better feel for the strike zone. Against Lou Collier/DB A's, a 2021 team in attendance, Byhre didn't need much other than his big fastball, which sat 85-88 mph throughout his four innings of work, touching multiple 89s. He's still honing in breaking ball feel, but once he gets better grasp of his curveball, he'll have an enviable two-pitch mix that will play at any level. Right now, it's an 11/5 breaker with solid depth, but he has a tendency to slow things down when he throws it.


In STiKS Black’s second 17U game, RHP Chris Byhre starred. We’re accustomed to seeing Byhre reach the low 90s, as he did in the spring, but it came at a cost: his command. On Thursday, Byhre dialed it back in his start against Rhino WI and came within one out of tossing a complete game shutout. From start to finish, the uncommitted 2020 righty sat in the 83-86 mph range, touching 87 mph multiple times throughout. His offspeed is still a work in progress, but given his premium arm strength, the change in velo is effective as he continues to sharpen his breaking ball’s bite. He aced a strike out looking on the outside corner with an 87 mph fastball on the black to end the sixth, his final full frame.
