Indiana commit. 6-foot-2, 155-pounds, with a lanky, athletic build that shows projectability. The former member of Team Illinois at the PBR Junior Future Games impressed in this look. Showed above-average confidence and poise on the mound for a freshman. Threw two innings in relief, allowed no hits or runs, walked two, and struck out two, earning the win. Threw 31 pitches with 22 of them being strikes (71%). Fastball sat 84-86 mph, touching 87 mph. Curveball sat 72-73 mph with a sharp, 11/5 shape, thrown for strikes. Swartz has a chance to be a high-level arm in the class.

RHP Gavin Swartz (Normal University, 2026) is a 6-foot-2, 155-pound prospect with arm speed and strength that stands to blossom as he matures, similar to his brother Jake, who’s now a freshman at Illinois. Jake trended up throughout his prep career, finishing as the No. 15-ranked player in the 2022 class. Gavin’s already around the same size as his older brother, and his arm action resembles Jake’s too. From a high ¾ slot, the younger Swartz is quick out front on a steep, heavy fastball that reached an 84.3 mph high at this event. Swartz uses a knuckle-grip curveball that flashed sharp action off an 11/5 plane. The Normal U-High freshman is a follow inside this class, with an interesting ceiling.

Junior Futures Games: RHP/1B Gavin Swartz (Normal University, 2026) got the nod for Team Illinois and was impressive throughout his start, working his fastball in the 78-81 mph range with a loose and quick arm action. To pair off his fastball, Swartz went to a sharp 11/5 breaking ball at 65-66 mph and a changeup at 73-74 mph

 

Making it into the semi-finals, Team Illinois faced off against a talented Team Michigan roster. In the first half of the game Illinois took a commanding 13-1 lead. While running low on arms RHP Gavin Stanislawski threw three critical innings keeping the talented Michigan team to only one run. Throughout his outing Stanislawski showed his ability to control all three of his pitches: a 74-77 mph fastball, a 64-66 mph curveball, and a 69-71 changeup.
