VA/DC PreSeason All-State Central

Foster is 6-2 with an athletic 180 pound frame that has plenty of projection left to it. He throws from a high three-quarters arm slot, longer loose quick arm action and normal effort to his delivery. Drop and drive delivery, shoulders are uphill and closed, lands slightly closed with a slight fall off finish and some recoil. Fastball was 83-84, with downward angle and some late armside run to it. Curveball was 70-73 with good armspeed and late hard 11/5 break to it. Change-up was 78-79 with good armspeed and heavy fade.
