2/24/17- The big lefty came out electric in the first showing a clean and easy delivery and as he found his timing and extension, the fastball climbed from 90-93 mph to touching 94 and 95 mph. Eder settled in and pitched in the 90-93 range while showing a curveball that flashed above average depth at times at 71-73 and an occasional 71 mph changeup. Eder would leave the game after 3.2 innings while allowing no runs on two hits while striking out eight.

10/23/16- Vanderbilt recruit. Stands at 6-foot-4, 215 pounds with a strong, athletic, projectable build. Throws from the ¾ slot with a quick arm which causes the ball to jump on the batter. Fastball sat 91-93 mph, mostly 92-93 in his second inning where he worked the corners of the plate for strikes. Curveball had some depth and shape to it at 73-74 mph where it had a 1/7 break. Struck out three in his two innings on the mound.

10/16/16- Vanderbilt recruit. Stands at 6-foot-4, 214 pounds with a strong, solid, athletic frame. Throws out of the ¾ slot with a short arm action which creates some deception, ball jumps out of his hand. He works downhill with the fastball that sat 90-92 mph, touching 93 with some life. Although, an inconsistent front side resulted in some command issues with the pitch. He also showed a curveball that had tight spin and depth ranging from 74-76 mph. The big, strong lefty struck out three in his two innings and is very interesting given his size and the life on the fastball. If the command continues to improve he could go fairly high come June.

6-foot-4, 210 pounds with a tall, athletic and projectable frame with strength. 3/4 arm slot and gets great extension. Fastball sits 89-92 and he touches 93 mph. Fastball is downhill with life. Curveball is 70-74 mph with good depth. Big loopy breaker with depth. Has good mound presence. Knows how to pitch. Has a chance to be a good 2017 draft.

2020 DRAFT:Eder is a long bodied, long limbed lefty who stands 6-foot-4 and weighs 220 pounds. He pitches with a low-90s fastball and, at times, an above-average 77-79 mph curveball. Eder shows an easy, on-line delivery with good direction to the plate and solid extension out front from a high three-quarter slot. His fastball shows average life and spin (2050-2215 rpm), while the spin rate on his breaker is very good, topping out in the mid-2800s. It will show ML shape and quality depth, but he struggles to consistently find the strike zone. Same with his heater, as he struggles to throw many quality strikes with this pitch as well. A developing, low-80s straight changeup is his third pitch. At his best, Eder shows an ability to go inside to right-handed hitters while also locating to his arm side and can touch the mid-90s. With a ceiling as a mid-rotation ML starter, Eder battles on the bump, but he has yet to consistently perform up to the level of his stuff (1-1, 3.60 ERA, 20 IP, 20 H, 9 BB, 27 SO). He will likely be considered for selection around the third round.

2/16/20:The long bodied, long limbed lefty was disappointing in his opening weekend start, but fared better in Week Two against UI-Chicago with 11 strikeouts in 5.2 innings pitched. While facing Cal Poly during opening weekend, Eder struggled to find the strike zone lasting just 3.1 innings with a low-90s fastball and, at times, an above average 77-79 mph curveball. The spin rate on his breaker is very good, topping out in the mid-2800s, while mostly sitting in the mid-2700s. It showed great shape and ML quality depth, but he struggled to consistently find the strike zone. He did find 94 mph a couple times with his heater, but struggled to throw many quality strikes with this pitch as well. At his best, Eder showed an ability to go inside to right-handed hitters while also locating to his arm side. On the day he threw multiple long innings and was out after facing three hitters in the fourth inning. Heading into the 2020 season Eder was projected as a top 3-4 round pick. Against Cal Poly, this was not the case. However, with at least 12 more weeks remaining this season he has plenty of time to correct his opening weekend deficiences and continue the improvements shown during Week Two. (Seifert)

8/22/19:In just 19.2 innings of work this summer, Eder showed the stuff that made him the 33rd overall ranked prep prospect and No. 2 LHP byPrep Baseball Reportheading into the 2017 draft. He’s a long-bodied lefty at 6-foot-5, 220 pounds, with an easy, on-line delivery with good direction to the plate and extension out front. He delivered 88-94 mph fastballs from a high three-quarter slot with below-average life and above-average control. Spin rate ranged from 2050-2215 rpm. The Vandy southpaw mostly pitched at 88-90 mph, reaching back for 92-93 with two strikes to finish hitters. His best offspeed offering was an average curveball at 79-80 mph with 1/7 rotation. Eder Also mixed in a fringy 81 mph straight changeup as the third pitch in his arsenal. We did not see his best stuff during this late July start against Falmouth, but he pitched and battled, scattering eight hits over five innings, allowing two runs, walking one and striking out five. Scouting whispers of better velocity and improved breaking stuff during his previous start were heard, but not seen, though his four regular season Cape appearances resulted in an impressive 15 strikeouts over 15 innings with just four walks and 12 hits allowed (1.07 WHIP) to go with a 1.20 ERA and .207 BAA. Eder is a top talent with a high ceiling and profiles as a starting pitcher at the professional level. He will likely be considered early on Day Two with consistency in a starting role this spring for the Commodores. (Seifert)
