Of course I didn’t have radar on him, so it could be deceiving. He seemed to me more like a control pitcher with a bit of a deceptive delivery; not a power pitcher.

They were talking about him working in the mid-90’s consistently, last year. That’s no good for the draft stock.

Another person there said his command was off, slider had no bite and he saw just one plus change-up.

If his name starts to pop up in the 9-14 range, we will add his page. We started off with nine pages, but we will add more as the season progresses and post updates on many more players.

Because those names were terrible…..can’t say much more about some of the newer names either though. I especially hate Colin, and if we have another boy, that’s one of the names my wife likes. I’ll fight that to the grave.

He reminds me of young Clayton Kershaw just so much more raw. High Risk/High Reward type

Think he will rise up draft boards, he is already ranked #13 overall, has a sweet Left handed swing and has a great arm and quickness behind the dish. Can never have enough good young catchers, plus he can play some 3B.
