Notes

8/10/22

Another southpaw to know in the 2024 class is Jacob Gimbel (Joliet Catholic). Gimbel has a strong, compact frame and uninterrupted, clean arm with pitchability. Gimbel struck out one while allowing two hits over his three innings of work while working his fastball in the low-80’s.

8/09/22
Positional Profile: LHP
Body: 5-10, 170-pounds.
Delivery: Athletic delivery, high leg-kick into balance point, drops into back knee before striding with a drop/drive lower-half down the mound, stride works in-line to the plate, changed tempo at-times to mess with timing. In-game stats: 3 IP, 2 H, 1 R, K, HBP.
Arm Action: LH. Short arm circle into a 3/4 slot.
FB: T82.5, 80-82 mph. Slight running action to the arm-side at times. T2285, 2142 average rpm.
CB: 67-69 mph. Sharp 1/7 shape with depth. T2086, 2037 average rpm.
SL: 71-72 mph. Sharp 2/8 action, thrown with intent and for strikes. T2138, 1991 average rpm.
CH: 73-77 mph. Flashed slight fading action, near fastball arm-speed. T2087, 1819 average rpm.
4/20/22

Uncommitted. Wiry, 5-foot-10, 170-pound frame, room to fill out in the lower-half. Started on the mound for Joliet Catholic and was lights out over his five innings of work, scattering just two hits with one earned run and striking out nine. The Southpaw’s arm works with a clean circle out of the glove before moving into a high ¾ slot. On the mound, Gimbel works with a fluid tempo while also actively trying to work quickly, wasting no time between pitches with a confident presence. Mechanically, he loads into his back knee at balance point before moving into an in-line stride towards the plate, landing square. His fastball worked up to 80 mph with life to his arm-side and played at the top of the zone at times, setting up a sharp curveball with 1/7 shape and tight spin, thrown often off a similar fastball plane at 67-69 mph.
