Piersol has a lanky athletic frame standing around 5-foot-11, 140-pounds. Has projection left to the young frame and plenty of room to fill out. Lower effort delivery, high leg lift, and repeats delivery well. Longer arm swing and throws from a three-quarter arm slot. Showed mainly a two pitch mix on the day with a clear difference in the four seam and two seam fastballs. The four seam fastball seemed to be used mostly to the glove side and stayed 80-83 mph early on, while the two seamer had distinct arm side run and he used it mostly to the arm side and worked best versus left handers. The velocity and spin dropped just a shade. The velocity on the two seamer stayed in the 77-79 mph range and the spin was in the 1700-1850 range while the spin on the four seam stayed higher 1900's and up to 2070 rpm. The breaking ball, while early on looked more sliderish, had more curveball action and it got more visible as the game progressed. Early on it backed up to the arm side and as the game progressed he did a good job of making the pitch happen out front and showed more depth while working to the glove side, although he did back backdoor a few left-handed hitters and it showed late 12/6 shape. The breaking ball stayed between 67-70 mph throughout his outing and was very effective with it. This was Piersol's first varsity start. He faced some solid bats, especially in the front half of the order and never backed down. Was very efficient with his pitch count, throwing 76 pitches in six and one third innings and approximately 60% of those were for strikes. Got early contact and kept hitters off balance with the offspeed. Overall a really nice outing for the freshman, who got his first win of his high school career.
