Reply to "PG Pitcher/Catcher IA showcase"

Sorry all- I was out fulfilling my last minute holiday procrastinator roll, and was delighted to see the responses and interest to my OP.  My 2017 is 5'11 190. (I'm 6'1 and grew after junior year so hoping he can get another inch or so).  He had a max FB last fall at 86. Sits 81-84.  He is athletic and has been timed in the 60 at 6.55. As he has developed his mechanics, he has gained 5 mph to his FB since he started HS. His club team is well known in the Chicago/I-94 area for producing pitchers. When he tried out for them as OF/RHP last year, even after seeing a 6.8 60 and plus arm, they told him he should focus on pitching, as that was the area they saw him developing and playing at the next level. While it was a difficult decision, he went that route and has been able to play on their A team. While they have other bigger, projectable, harder throwing pitchers, I guess they see something in him. He does show good off speed, produces ground balls, and can get outs.
