Lanky and projectable at 6-foot-5, 190 pounds.  Works from a high-¾ slot with the arm swing working behind the body line, creating some stiffness and shoulder restriction.  Good balance point, but some effort as the arm works to get forward.  Shoulders are closed to the line at balance, but works to land on line.  Fastball ranged 77-79.  Threw two different breaking balls.  The slider sat 66-68, sweeping out of the hand and through the zone.  Curveball touched 61 with gradual arm in a 10/4 shape.  Both breaking balls were erratic, showing better feel when he backed the pitches up, two in a row.  Change-up topped at 68, working with similar arm speed to the fastball.

Tall build with long limbs.  Worked from a high-3/4 slot with a whippy arm and an easy delivery.  Flashes athleticism with delivery while landing slightly across his line creating some deceptive cross-fire.  Fastball ranged 75-77 with a feel for his arm-side.  The Curveball touched 64, and was a bit inconsistent with its action while he fell off to his glove side.  Change-up was raw but flashed potential, sitting 66-68.  Offensively, Austin pre-set with an uphill angle in his shoulders and loaded down and in with his hands, creating some barrel awareness issues.  He ran a 7.65 in the sixty, on a soft surface.
