8/22/22

Standing at 6-foot-1, 180-pounds, the southpaw has room to add strength to his lean and projectable frame. On the mound, Blahnik moves with a high leg-kick into a drop/drive lower-half, remaining in-line with the plate throughout his stride. His arm plays with a long/loose arm swing out of the glove into a high ¾ slot. The left-hander’s fastball cruised in the 80-82 mph range, topping out at 83 mph (T2255 rpm). He went to two different breaking balls to pair off his fastball; the first being a sharp 1/7 curveball with late break at 68-69 mph (T2426 rpm) and the second being a sharp 2/8 slider (T2428 rpm).
