First off, I love the site and I've been lurking as a guest for a while and finally decided to register and start posting! Anyway, I was just wondering.. I am just wondering how I compare to other high school pitchers that are hoping to play college ball or even getting drafted. Never less I play baseball because I love the sport and I am passionate about it.
I am a little over 6'0 and about 160lbs. I throw right handed and I write left handed haha. Yet my four seam has a little zip to it. I have been gun'd at 86 mph at a practice yet my location was awful. I can comfortably throw at 82~84. I have a cutter which I throw like a curve minus the spinning motion.. which is my main out pitch. I have a working changeup which I am practicing with.
I've played summer ball and just wrapped up my junior season on the varsity team. I was on varsity since my freshman year in high school, yet I was rarely used. I was used as a reliever pitching 6 or 7 innings. Same with sophomore year, yet I was the primary reliever. Yet again this year, my school uses a 3 man rotation and I was asked to be the rarely used 3rd rotational pitcher / closer. I'm a PO.
Two seam - 76-78mph
Four Seam - 81-84mph
Cutter 82-83 mph
Curve - havent gotten this thing gun'd since like sophomore summer.
for fun I throw a splitter which I'm working on to use in games and what not. A straight changeup which is getting there in the HS levels
I plan on going to a 4 year university with or without baseball, yet it would be sweet if I can get any advice on just having a better senior season.
