Dan Cevette
President, New York

Our "Player Spotlights" will be reserved for any prospect across New York who's abilities on the field have made some noteworthy recent buzz. Possibly a recent event where a Top Performer Spotlight article is just not enough, or maybe a recent commitment to a major program. Whatever it is, I'll (Dan Cevette) be going in-depth on the player spotlighted below with personal insight and honest feedback. Let's get started.

Joshua Vega RHP / Christ the King , NY / 2019

CEVETTE'S QUICK HIT: Quick delivery, fast arm, and has shown us steady improvements through two events. He's coming to the NYS Games and expect to see him in the 85+ range with an advanced CB. 

SCOUTING REPORT: Standing 5-foot-10, 165-pounds from a lean athletic build. Quick tempo to his delivery, creates positive momentum, uses hip separation with a long stride, fluid long arm action, releasing the ball from a high 3/4 slot fastball peaks at 84 mph. Shows confidence and feel with the change-up, fastball hand speed with a diving to arm side action 75 - 76 mph. Curveball sits 73-75 mph showing a hard late 10/4 shape, swing and miss potential. In October of 2016 we witnessed him sitting 77 mph, now up to 84 showing significant arm strength improvement.
