Notes

Comments

10/15/22

Kowalkowski is listed at a projectable 6-foot-2, 145 pounds; an upside build. Kowalkowski showed well as a two-way prospect at the event. On the mound, Sawyer works with a full circle arm swing to a three-quarter slot and a quick arm out front. The fastball topped at 80 mph landing in the zone with some natural cut life finish to the pitch. The curveball, 68-70 mph, has two-plane break and 10/4 shape, flashed late bite. He also displayed a feel for a changeup, 74-75 mph. During BP, Kowalkowski consistently barrelled up balls showing hitability and strength in hands. From the outfield, the ball jumped out of his hand topping out at 87 mph during the defensive portion of the event.

Kowalkowski can really spin the baseball. Inside a wiry/lean 6-foot, 135-pound stature, Kowalkowski was up to a projectable 78 mph on a fastball that spun at an average rate of 2,312 rpm, and his curveball flashed genuine late bite, and not just for his age, while also spinning at a high rate (2,455 rpm on average). He has a quick, loose arm and he maintains his balance well, indicating that as he fills out, the velocity will climb complementing the rest of his already impressive arsenal.
