7/10/16 - The top prospect from Missouri moved from Fort Zumwalt West HS (MO) to Kentucky the summer of his senior year.

2/16/15 - Boyle is a 6-foot-5 200-pound right-handed pitcher in the 2017 class.  Impressed with projection and velocity, long limbed, athletic frame, high three-quarters arm slot, throws with easy effort, loose arm action, arm works, smooth rhythm, stays in line down mound, releases with downhill tilt, shows feel for three pitches, fastball at 84-87 mph, highest velo of the event, fastball has life with run and sink, curveball at 70-73, 11-to-5 plane, sharp/late break, change-up at near fastball arm speed, 78-79 mph, arm side release. Boyle is a top prospect in the 2017 class with a high ceiling.

2020 DRAFT:At 6-foot-7, 225 pounds, Boyle is an intimidating presence on the mound – even before he unleashes one of the top two-pitch combos that was found on the Cape last summer. The big-bodied righty is capable of reaching triple digits with his lively heater, sitting 96-99 mph, and backing it up with a hard, tilted mid-80s slider. The slide piece is still inconsistent and will fluctuate between a true two-plane slider with sharp bite and a looser, more vertical breaker with soft action. Boyle can struggle with his timing and his line to home. When he stays true in his stride and on line to the plate he's able to pepper the zone with both the fastball and slider, but can yank to the glove slide when he opens up too much. When he hits his mechanical check points, Boyle looks like a potential late inning weapon at the next level, as evidenced by his impressive 1.92 ERA/1.21 WHIP/.106 BAA last summer, along with 28 strikeouts in 14 innings of work. However, summer success has not translated to performance on the diamond during the spring. His Notre Dame career of a 6-plus ERA with 48 walks in 36 IP has caused a major hit to his draft value. Earlier in his career, Boyle projected as a sure-fire Day One arm, but he has now thrown his way to consideration around the fourth round.

8/20/19:At 6-foot-7, 225 pounds, Joe Boyle is an intimidating presence on the mound – even before he starts unleashing one of the top two-pitch combos to be found on the Cape this summer. The big-bodied righty is capable of reaching triple digits with his lively heater, sitting 96-99 mph, and backs it up with a hard, tilted mid-80s slider. The slide piece is still inconsistent and will fluctuate between a true two-plane slider with sharp bite and a looser, more vertical breaker with soft action. Boyle can struggle with his timing and his line to home. When he stays true in his stride and on line to the plate he’s able to pepper the zone with both the fastball and slider, but can yank to the glove slide when he opens up too much. When he hits his mechanical check points, Boyle looks like a potential late inning weapon at the next level, as evidenced by his impressive 1.92 ERA/1.21 WHIP/.106 BAA this summer, along with 28 strikeouts in 14 innings of work. The Notre Dame righty projects as a potential late Day One arm for next June’s MLB Draft. (Faleris)
