The high-waisted 6-foot-1, 178-pound prospect tossed what was, possibly, the most impressive ‘pen of the entire day. From a fluid-moving frame, Clayton works with a slight drop/drive lower-half that remains in-line to the plate when striding out, repeating his delivery consistently. It’s a highly athletic operation that flows efficiently down the mound, creating tremendous arm speed through release from a straight over-the-top slot. The separator in Clayton’s arsenal is his knack for spinning two different breaking balls. His curveball plays from an 11/5 plane and features late, sharp break, kept primarily down with noteworthy depth at 70-72 mph (2,607 rpm on average). He then went to a shorter 10/4 breaking ball, 70-73 mph, also featuring elite spin measured at 2,566 rpm on average. Both showed hard, late action that he threw for strikes at a high rate for a freshman, and the breaking balls play off his fastball especially well. Positionally, Clayton darted his way to a 6.83 in the 60-yard dash early on in his workout and recorded one of the day’s farthest batted balls (344 feet).

5-foot-11, 175 pounds; compact, strong build. Started on the mound for Hitters Navy on Friday night against Cangelosi Sparks North during the PBR at The Rock Championships. Starts centered on the rubber, tempo’d side-step initiates a controlled tall/fall type delivery, upright posture at balance point, level shoulders to footstrike. Works in line to target, lands square with an athletic follow through release. Short arm circle finishes out of a near over-the-top arm slot. Fastball worked on the corners at 75-78 mph, straight action. Curveball flashed swing-and-miss action with downer spin, spotted it up down in the zone, capable of burying it below barrels at a 2,200-plus rpm average. Right-handed hitter, quiet and simple in the box and creates easy jump off the barrel thanks to his strong/quick wrists

5-foot-10, 150-pounds with an athletic frame. Projectable physical maturity. He batted fifth in every game this weekend and played left field, and he made two pitching appearances. On Friday, and sat in the 70-74 mph range both times, while mixing in a tight/sharp breaking ball that he shows advanced feel for. At the plate, he finished his weekend with a line of 3-for-10 with a pair of doubles, two runs scored, two walks, and five RBIs. Right-handed hitter, sets up in a tall and balanced stance with a slight leg lift trigger. His bat travels on a level plane through the zone, and he showed off solid bat speed.

Clayton came on in relief and looked excellent, sitting in the 70-74 mph range with an advanced feel to spin a breaking ball for his age.
