Briley is proving to be one of the more interesting projection RHP in the state and he did not nothing but solidify this at the Future Games.  We first laid eyes on Briley at our Open ID showcase earlier this summer and continues to move in the right direction. The 6-foot-3 right-hander pitched at 83-84 and has been up as high as 86-87 over the summer and he does this with an easy free flowing arm stroke and without any use of his lower half.  Briley shows advanced feel for a change-up, while his breaking ball is still a work in progress. Plenty of projection here with strong indicators there is more to come and the kind of strikes that stay.

Briley is a long rangy 2021 right-hander with broad shoulders and room to grow into some man strength at 6-foot-2, 155-pounds. Briley impressed on the mound at this event. The long limbed right-hander has plenty of upside and showed more and more velocity (topped at 86 mph) as his bullpen progressed.  His delivery matches up well with his body and is very repeatable. As he learns to command the bottom of the zone, look for Briley’s ability to stay tall and over the rubber to pay dividends. The lanky right-hander will most likely pitch with very good angle as he progresses. He gives his arm time to work with good balance over the rubber and as he gets stronger the projectable right-hander is going to gain even more velocity. Briley still has work to do with his secondary offerings, as he buries his breaking ball (66-69) deep into his hand and loses some shape and feel for the pitch. As he gains confidence in his feel breaking ball, he will have a chance to repeat the pitch with more hand-speed and finish.  Briley has a workable change-up and this is a pitch that has a chance to some very quickly as he commits to the pitch and finishes with the same hand-speed. All this one needs is mound time and room to make mistakes. You have to love the frame and body control on this young right-hander, but as he gains confidence look for him to show the ability to get unhinged and finish his pitches with some aggression. Arrow up for this young right-hander.
