Take a look at three beach area arms that threw Monday evening in two separate games. 

Maury

Cullen McKay RHP / OF / Maury, VA / 2022

Slower paced delivery that builds up to some late intent. Full arm circle and throws from a low three-quarter slot with high end arm speed. Slot drops slightly at times on the secondary offerings. In the first McKay was very scattered around the zone, but settled in some during the second inning and beyond. The fastball sat 90-92, mostly 91-92, in the first inning and then faded his next two innings to the 87-90 range. The arm was a little late getting up causing the fastball to work up and to the arm side. His best and most reliable pitch on the day was the breaking ball. The breaking ball had power curve tendencies with a hard downer bite sitting at 78-81 mph. McKay also mixed in a few changeups at 78-80 mph that had gradual arm side fade. While he struggled at times to consistently find the zone, the UVA commit has some of the best, most electric stuff in the state and will definitely be an arm to check in on again as the spring progresses.

 

 

 

Greenbrier Christian

Dominic Angrisani RHP / SS / Greenbrier Christian School, VA / 2023

Works with pace and intent. Lead leg swings open and lands slightly open at stride. Short arm circle and throws from an over the top slot. Everything is thrown with intent and fastball arm speed. Angrisani came on in relief of Dahlman and was strong in his short relief outing. The fastball sat 80-82 T83 from the higher slot and did a nice job working it to the glove side. The breaking ball, sitting at 67-69 mph, was arguably his best pitch. It tunneled well off of his fastball and got swings and misses in and out of the zone. It varied in shapes at times with occasional sweeping slider action and then more gradual slurvy shape to others. Showed a changeup at 75 mph.


 

 

Ocean Lakes

Peter Philips RHP / Ocean Lakes, VA / 2023

Solid frame with a strong lower half. Long arm swing and slot varied a touch with a lower three-quarter slot on the fastball and it raised just a touch on the breaking ball to a regular three-quarter slot. The fastball sat 84-86 mph and touched 87 on a brutally cold and windy night. The breaking ball was solid and showed the ability to throw it for strikes consistently. It sat 71-74 mph with a 76 mph outlier showing 11/5 shape and working best to the glove side. It backed up on him to the arm side a few times and did not have the downer bite that it had to the glove side. Philips is an intriguing uncommitted 2023 that coaches should get out and see this spring.
