Kroschel was one of the more impressive participants in Saturday’s event, showing real upside on both sides of the ball. Throwing from a high-¾ arm slot, he worked 82-84 miles per hour with his fastball with carry, roughly 21” of vertical break and finish. Kroschel showed two secondary offerings, a curveball at 70-72 mph with sharp 11/5 shape and a changeup he showed quality feel for. The changeup had late depth, appearing like a fastball nearly the whole way into the hitting zone. On the offensive side, Kroschel used an open set-up and relaxed hands en route to one of the more impressive showings at the plate. His compact swing enabled him to maintain quality timing, and his barrel control and flat-planed swing resulted in a 91.2 mph exit velocity, which was the seventh best mark of the day. His 89 mile-per-hour throw from the outfield and 6.95 60-yard dash were both event bests, too.

OF/RHP Clayton Kroschel (Wayland Academy, 2025) once again proved to our scouting staff that he is one of the best players in the state. Listed at an uber-projectable 6-foot-1, 175-pounds, Kroschel has all sorts of room to add on strength as he continues to develop. He impressed early on with a 6.86 in the 60-yard dash, before showing off his athletic right-handed stroke. At the plate, Kroschel’s hands work uphill from a medium load, creating leverage and bat- speed through the zone. On defense, he works quickly and athletically through the ball unleashing throws through the target with accuracy and carry at 86 mph. Additionally, Kroschel has notable skills and talent as a RHP. His arm works out of a high ¾ slot and drives the ball downhill creating leverage and a fastball that sits in the 82-84 mph range. He has a curveball and change up to add to his three pitch mix arsenal to attack hitters. Overall, it was an impressive showcase for Clayton Kroschel.

3/13/22

Kroschel is an athletic freshman outfielder who stands at 6-foot-1, 175 pounds with room to grow, recording a 7.33 in the 60-yard dash to begin his day. During his batting practice round, Kroschel stood tall and narrow with a flat barrel set. Using a short toe tap, and a direct hand action to the ball, he drove line drives from gap to gap with 70 mph barrel speed, and exited up to 90.2 mph. Worth noting, that Kroschel had quality vertical barrel control, and had great feel for managing the incoming pitch level.
