7/02/20

6-foot-2, 165 pounds; among the more projectable uncommitted athletes in the state’s 2021 class. Thin, athletic build who’s trending way up for his work on the mound. Against a fierce STiKS Black lineup over the weekend, Hartlaub dodged barrels all game with a two-pitch mix of fastball and sweeping slider. Fastball sat 84-86 mph for much of the hard-working outing, touching 87-88 a couple of times each. Slider featured a lot of horizontal movement, some sharp, and it was his ability to backdoor it for strikes to lefties or get a righty to chase it away that made it an outpitch for him. He also offers some two-way upside as a natural, savvy shortstop with easy actions. Loose, simple right-handed bat that’s produced some loud contact for us in the past. A high-follow ‘21 prospect who remains uncommitted.
