Louisville commit, ranked No. 6 in the Illinois 2022 class. Strong 6-foot-4 230-pound frame with broad shoulders and a developed lower-half. One of the premier right-handed arms in the state. Clean ¾ arm action. Polished delivery; loads well into his back leg and uses his lower-half well, creating a lot of power going down the mound, drop and drive type delivery, advanced hip-shoulder separation, strides in-line with the plate. Patera started on the mound and went six innings while only allowing two hits, walking five and striking out nine. Showcase a late-jumping fastball with arm-side life that sat 92-94 mph early on, touching 95 mph once; settled in at 90-94 mph later in the game. He went to a plus slider that was in the 79-82 mph range, with late 10/4 action and thrown with conviction. Changeup was thrown sparingly and in the 83-84 mph range with arm-side action and thrown with the same arm-speed as his fastball. High-level 2022 Prospect.
