11/18/18 - Verbally committed to Coastal Carolina.
7/8/18 - 6-foot-3, 165-pound right-handed pitcher, lean lanky frame with upside. Loose arm works clean and easy from a ¾ slot. Showed command early in outing with fastball, played with arm side run and sink, 84-86 mph. Breaking ball played 11/5, 75-76 mph.
6/19/18 - Uncommitted. Kurki’s long-limbed, athletic frame looks like that of a pitcher. He effortlessly repeated a compact delivery that allowed him to freely work linear down the mound as his loose, quick arm swing gave way to a true, ¾ release point. He calmly pounded the bottom of the strike zone with control of a fastball that sat mostly 83-85 with some arm side life. He also featured a changeup at 75-78 which he showed confidence in turning over for strikes, and displayed arm side sink. He did not throw many sliders, but the ones that he did were thrown at 70-73 with some shape, but mostly it is a developing pitch. Overall, there is plenty to like about Kurki moving forward. His loose, quick arm will be greatly aided by more strength in the future, and his strong foundation of mechanics will allow him to adjust quicker to the new strength. Interesting to note: Kurki did a great job holding runners and varying his holds and looks while being quick to the plate.
3/11/18 - 6-foot-3, 165-pound right-handed pitcher, lean projectable build, upside frame. Delivery is in rhythm and on line, composed mound presence, squared athletic finish. Arm action is loose, ¾ slot, easy effort. Fastball finishes well with hard arm side run, feel for the zone, potential to command, sat 83-84 mph, touched 87 mph. Curveball thrown aggressively but lacked action, 70-75 mph, slider potential guy. Changeup sinks, fastball arm speed, has feel at bottom of zone, 73-74 mph.
