Notes

Comments

8/10/22

RHP/1B Connor Blue (O’Fallon, 2025) intrigued our staff on both sides of the ball at this event. A strong 5-foot-11, 170-pound athlete, Blue worked gap-to-gap with ease in BP, generating deep, elevated contact (259 ft.) on average and clobbering his furthest batted ball 341 feet, per TrackMan. He hopped on the mound Tuesday night and showcased loud stuff for his age, pumping his fastball at 83-86 mph while spinning a sharp low-70s slider at 2,372 RPM on average, peaking at 2,547 RPM. Headed into his sophomore year at O’Fallon, Blue is certainly a name-to-know prospect from Southern Illinois.
