Scouting Report: 6-foot-3, 205-pound two-way prospect with big time potential. Machamer was was one of the top prospects at the 2013 Top Prospect Games. On the mound, the righty uses a quiet, repeatable delivery. He throws with quick arm speed through a high ¾ arm slot. His fastball sits 91-94, up to 97 mph. The curveball comes in at 72-73 with 11/5 break. He also shows a 72-73 mph changeup with arm-side run. In the field, he shows smooth, fluid actions. Takes good angles to the ball. Looks advanced for his age. Shows softness in his hands and a quick transfer. At the plate, he uses a balanced setup. Features a simple load with little wasted movement. Bat stays through the zone with uphill path. Truly hits the ball gap-to-gap.

Overview: In 2016, the two-way prospect solidified himself as one of the top prospects in the Midwest. Machamer came in at the #2 spot in the state rankings and 106th overall for PBR. The Massillon product has the potential to be a star and we look forward to watching him progress at Kentucky and possibly the major leagues.
