Draft League Spotlight: Austin Cheeley

Mike Rosenbaum
Senior Prospect Analyst

Player: Austin Cheeley
Position: RHP

School: Middle Tennessee State

He pairs his heater with a 79-81 mph splitter that serves as his out pitch and rounds out his arsenal with a slider that registers in the same velocity band.
