Team Michigan has a number of good arms representing the state. Here is a quick look at who will be throwing.
Brad Schaenzer, LHP/OF, Lake Orion HS, 2014
Schaenzer is an outstanding pitcher. We have seen him 86-88 mph with good arm side run. There is some effort in his delivery but he has some upside. A true competitor, Schaenzer has three pitches for strikes and will show plus breaking ball at times.
Oliver Jaskie, LHP, Forrest Hills Central HS, 2014
Jaskie is an intriguing lefthander. He is 6-foot-4 and can really pitch. He plays for the Grand Rapids Diamonds in the summer, who play high level of competition, and he holds his own. His changeup is his bread and butter and the breaking ball is coming along. His velocity will come later as there is more left in the tank.
Jacob Wahmhoff, RHP, Holland HS, 2014
Wahmhoff has flown under the radar this summer. He sits 83-84 mph but it is free and easy. He will be a one to keep an eye on as he develops. Wahmhoff will probably not see time in the infield but he can play a position as well. He is starting to come into his own.
Michael Reid, RHP, Bishop Foley HS, 2014
Reid is a tall lanky 6-foot-4 frame that has some upside. Not the hardest thrower yet but it is starting to come as he will touch 84 mph from time to time. His breaking ball, when on, can be a harder slider that is 73 mph. He is going to play in the Bishop Foley program this coming year, a program which is back to back state champions.
Michael Hendrickson, LHP/OF, Saline HS, 2014
Hendrickson is long and lanky. His fastball has been up to 84 mph but he creates good down angle at times. His breaking ball has been tight at times with downer action. Hendrickson plays for Saline HS a consistent powerhouse in the state so he is sure to know the game.
Reid Kelley, RHP, Rockford HS, 2014
Kelley is an interesting righty. Playing for Rockford HS, who was ranked nationally at one point, he has exposure to some good competition. He has been 84-87 mph in the past. There is some funk in the delivery that can create some deception and when he repeats it can be pretty good. His breaking ball is coming along and is the makings of a slider.
Logan Magsig, SS/RHP, Hudsonville HS, 2014
Although Magsig is primarily a shortstop he will most likely throw an inning on the mound for Team Michigan. In the state championships, Magsig came into save gaves and help his team to a state title. He has been 84-86 mph in the past and is a winner.
