4/12/17

Two way prospect stood out during four scoreless innings of relief but also made an athletic diving play in the outfield and produced a 2-for-3 day at the plate. 6-foot-3, 170-pound frame is close to max effort from a 3/4 arm slot with a loose, quick arm motion. Sat 87-88 early touching 89 mph. Settled in at 85-86 but was able to find 88 on occasion in his final two innings. At higher end of velocity fastball is very straight. Also utilized a sweeping 73 mph curveball sparingly as a chase offering.

6/07/16

Lean, athletic 6-foot-2, 160-pound frame. Right-handed hitter starts wide open and toe-taps to square. Took some solid swings throughout the game and barreled the baseball in two of four at-bats. At a PBR Maryland workout last month, ran a 7.04 60-yard dash and posted 92-mph arm strength from the outfield (82-84, t85 on the mound). Prospect status could jump as he adds strength.

5/15/16

Lean athletic frame at 6-foot-2, 160-pounds. Ran a 7.04 60-yard dash and a 4.59 from home to 1st. Hits from a tall athletic set up. Open stance that closes on stride and locks hips some. Uses bottom half. Level bat with good extension through contact. Exit velo of 84mph. Clean hands and exchange. Good balance and body control working through balls in the middle. Quick arm action from a low ¾ arm slot with throws at 82 mph across the diamond.  Loose, quick arm action at a high ¾ slot with throws up to 92 mph from the OF. Plus arm. Interesting two-way prospect to follow.

2020 DRAFT:After gaining notoriety in the Cape last summer striking out 18 in 13.2 IP, Way jumped onto the cross-checker radar with an electric fall and a fastball that touched 97. Although his stuff was down a bit from there this spring, he did sit 90-93 mph with his fastball and touch 95. During our spring look, his slider command was erratic early in the game, but he soon found feel for the strike zone with the pitch at 79-84 mph. It shows fair shape, but lacks power at that velocity. His best offspeed offering is an average 82-83 mph changeup which will likely become consistently above average in the future. Standing an athletic 6-foot-3, 190 pounds, Way has remaining projection, but did not show the present stuff of a Top 50 overall pick. However, he did perform exceptionally well (5-0, 0.67 ERA, 40 IP, 17 H, 9 BB, 58 SO) and certainly gained the attention of scouting directors and national cross-checkers, as several were in attendance during each of his starts this shortened spring season. The team who selects him will need to pay up, as he's committed to LSU for next season and his signability will largely dictate his selection this summer.

2/7/20:Although Way’s stuff was down a bit from the electric fastball he showed in the fall (up to 97), he was very effective during his second start this spring. Pitching four shutout innings with a fastball mostly 90-92 mph and touching 93, he struck out six and did not allow a hit againstSan Jacinto. Early on his slider command was erratic, but he soon found feel for the strike zone with the pitch at 79-84 mph. It showed fair shape and lacked power. His best offspeed offering on this look was an average 82-83 mph changeup which will likely become consistently above average in the future. Overall, Way did not have the look of a Top 50 overall pick, but he has certainly gained the attention of scouting directors and national cross checkers, as several were in attendance. With likely a dozen more starts to his spring Way has plenty of time to find the electricity he showed last fall. He has committed to LSU for next season.

11/1/19:Way has had some hype around his name, thanks to his ability to run his fastball up to 96. The ball explodes out of his hand, as the arm action is fast and electric. To go with his plus fastball, he also features a low-to-mid 80s breaking ball with bite that he throws consistently enough to keep hitters from sitting fastball. The changeup comes from a similar slot with the same arm speed, disguising the fastball and making it look a tick harder than it already is. Although still somewhat of a wild card after pitching 20 innings his freshman season at Belmont Abbey College and logging more innings in the Cape Cod League (2-2, 3.29 ERA with 18 SO, 11 BB in 13.2 IP) this summer, Way looks poised for a breakout sophomore season.

10/23/19:Way once again lived up to the hype surrounding his name. In his bullpen session, Way lit up the radar guns touching 96 mph on the fastball that explodes out of the hand. The arm action is fast and electric with makings of developing into a legitimate power guy. Along with the plus fastball he runs a low to mid 80s breaking ball with bite that he throughs consistently enough to keep hitters from hunting the heater. The changeup comes from a similar slot with the same arm speed, disguising the fastball and making it look a tick harder than it already is.

9/27/19:Way was electric in his outing as he had the stands buzzing with coaches and scouts in attendance. Way flashed a lightning quick arm with mid 90s velocity as he was up to 95 mph with his fastball and countered it with a low 80s slider-shape breaking ball. In his lone inning of work, Way sat down the side in order...3 Ks


8/19/18: Righty featured a fastball that sat 85-87 at its best and settled in at 82-84. The pitch had some armside run and sink at the lower end of the spectrum and straightened out at the higher velocity. The lean 6-foot-3, 170-pounder also utilized a solid slider with 11/5 tilt at 73-75 that was typically a chase offering.
