6-foot, 185-pound, average athletic frame,sloped shoulders, with strength throughout, a durable pitchers frame. A left-handed pitcher, delivery works off of tempo and timing, hands go over head. Stays over the rubber, direction is more inline to plate, from the previous  events. The fastball was up to 83 mph, down in the zone, gets on the hitter, creating multiple weak swings. The breaking ball is his bread and butter out pitch, up to 75 mph, more slider action, showed ability to get it to the back foot of right-handed hitters. Pitched three clean quick innings, had all hitters off balance. Projects out to be able to do multiple things at the next level, more in there with fastball, breaking pitch already will play.

 6-foot, 180- pound athlete, sloped shoulders, wider back, showing strength throughout. A left-handed pitcher, having a very clean arm, working out of a ¾ slot. The lift is athletic, with coil to it, lands slightly across his body, making serious progress with this part of his delivery.

The change up, works well off the breaking ball, counters, with fade action to it, clocked at 64-67 mph. Pitched two clean innings of work, mixing all three pitches, with the breaking ball being his top pitch. Big follow.

6-foot-178-pound, average athletic frame, has added weight and strength from the previous event. Well proportioned athlete stronger lower half.  A left-handed pitcher, super smooth and repeatable delivery, small collapse on backside, could stay taller throughout. The arm action is clean, hides the baseball, working out of a natural 3/4 slot. Lands inline, minimal pull to front glove. Pounded the zone with a three pitch mix. The fastball was clocked at 83 mph, showing late arm side run. The breaking ball is his top pitch, is relentless with it, thrown for a get me over strike, and can be used as a put away pitch. Clocked at 68 mph, bigger break, proper shape and form to it. Threw a turn me over changeup at 71-73 mph, a weapon towards righties. Look for him to have a monster season.

5-foot-11, 168-pound, average athletic frame, sloped shoulders wider back, well proportioned, with room for added weight. A left-handed pitcher, more of a hybrid delivery, athletic lift, with coil, closes down the front side. Slight cross fire, pounds to glove side, delivering the pitch on an angle, deception to hitter.  The arm action is super clean, natural 3/4 slot, works on the backside. The extension and release is out front, back leg is strong. The fastball was clocked at 78 mph, pounded it to both sides, getting to glove side. Small sink and run to 2-seamer. Breaking pitch has depth and tilt to it, thrown for both a strike and can be used as a put-away pitch, cocked at 63 mph. Showed feel for the change up with natural fade and turn me over rotation, clocked at 71-72 mph.  Pitched with a slide step at times from stretch, everything seemed to be more crisp, with a quicker delivery. Continues to impress, look for fastball to spike this year, will be a guy to see this summer.

A left-handed pitcher, showed extremely well at this event for just entering his freshman year. Works from the set position, leg raise is athletic, gets to a good gather, separation is clean in the middle of the body. The lead leg direction lands 6-inches across his body, needs to straighten it.
