Ohio Insider: 2018 Top Prospect Games at WSU: Class of 2020/2021 - Sneak Peek At The Two-Way Prospects

Jace Middleton RHP / OF / Olentangy, OH / 2021

The top prospect in attendance with legit two-way potential at the D1 level. Obvious projection on the mound with a physical, 6-foot-4 frame. Long lever type that doesn’t have a ton of effort to delivery. Arm works well through a high-¾ slot. Quality three pitch mix lead by the 84-87 mph fastball. Breaking ball shows late dive on an 11/5 plane sitting 70-72 mph. The offering has present swing and miss to it. As impressive as the breaker was the changeup may have been better. The pitch has heavy arm side action at 76-77 mph. Starter type with the changeup making him equally as effective to both RHH and LHH. A left-handed hitter that starts in a balanced setup. Simple load that leads to balanced launch. Swing is level with obvious strength and speed through the zone. Ball comes off well without a ton of effort to strike. Middle of the lineup type guy with high swing. Some of the more raw power we’ve come across in his class for his class. Corner type in the outfield with a huge arm. Actions are fluid and athletic with above average ball skills. Really looks the part out there.
