11/10/18 - California Senior Games - Uncommitted. Six-foot-3, 200-pounds, Extra large frame with wide, squared shoulders with strength down to the wrists. Noticeable strength in the lower half with a thick backside and thighs. Starts tall before collecting weight on backside and driving down the mound where he gains ground after a high leg kick. Delivery is smooth and repeatable as are his mechanics. Arm is easy and without a lot of effort portending future projection in velocity. Atkinson showed a four-pitch repertoire with a fastball, curveball, changeup and slider. Fastball is heavy and shows tailing action into righties that he starts at the knees and keeps there. Shows the ability to run it black-to-black. Curveball is a present above average pitch with its sharp, late biting action with varying shape (12/6 and 11/5). Showed excellent command of the pitch. Atkinson showed feel for the changeup the couple times he threw it this outing, and the slider was a variation of the curveball with more sweeping action. Atkinson carries a 4.56 GPA.

9/9/18 - Uncommitted. At 6-foot-3, 200-pounds Atkinson may not be done growing as he carries the weight very well on his strong, athletic frame. There's noticeable strength in the lower half with strength developing around his squared shoulders. Compact arm action; he does a great job of using lower half to produce his power. Lands inline in an athletic position, however he falls off to first base side on occasion. Atkinson kept hitters off balance with a mix of a 2-seam cut fastball along with a traditional 4-seam version, and his curveball while mixing in his changeup. The 2-seamer was unhittable as the cut action on it caused hitters to commit early and unable to adjust. Resulted in lots of swing-and-miss. Four-seam fastball is heavy and works on a downhill plane. The changeup plays way up because it shows the same early actions of his 2-seam fastball before diving back in on righties. The curveball is a late showing, hard biting pitch which he shows feel for and command of at times.
