Scouting Report

Rhoades a LHP from Holly Springs High School. With a musclar legs and a thick lower half Rhoades is able to generate alot of power from the ground up. Using a OTT with a slight stab in the back to help create good arm speed on his pitches. Rhoades fastball sits in the mid 80's right now with ride in life up in the zone (18.3) IVB and - 14.3 HM. The CB has good shape to it will occationally pop out and miss high due to getting stuck behind. The best secondary pitch is a splitter with that has true S/M potential. Going foward as his command and secondary improves he will continue to take jumps forward.
