2014 unsigned senior showcase: Pitcher onlys

James Dougherty, RHP, La Salle HS, PA (2015)

Dougherty sat 77-78 from a high 3/4 arm slot with much more in the tank. The 6-foot-5, 220-pound righty is fluid in his delivery and displayed good tilt to the plate. Dougherty commanded the strike zone with three pitches also showcasing a 72 mph changeup thrown at fastball arm speed and a 68 mph curveball with 11/5 rotation. The senior is likely to see additional velocity for several years to come as his frame continues to mature and he incorporates more of his lower half in his delivery.

Vincent Togno, LHP, Pope John Paul II HS, PA (2015)

Togno displayed a deceptive high knee delivery and a low 3/4 arm slot during his bullpen session. The 5-foot-9, 155-pound lefty sat 70-71 with some hip coil that created further deception. Togno also flashed a 61 mph curveball that showed 2/8 rotation.

Bryson Turner, RHP, Brandywine Heights HS, PA (2015)

Turner is a 5-foot-11, 180-pound righty that sat 81-83 from a 3/4 arm slot with arm side run to his fastball. He also displayed command of a 78 mph changeup thrown at fastball arm speed and a 69 mph curveball with 11/5 rotation. Turner commanded the strike zone and showcased repeatable mechanics.
