Scouting Report

Deep South Invite 10/14/18:

Folds is a strong kid at 6-foot 180-pounds he had easily his best outing in front of the Prep Baseball staff at the Deep South Invite. His fastball was up to 80 MPH and continues to show a good potential future out-pitch in his 12-6 curve-ball. Folds is aggressive to the plate even when he pitches backwards, and carved hitters up in the live game portion of the event. Look for a future quality three pitch mix in the future and an aggressive bulldog type demeanor.

8/11/2018- Peach State Games

The athletic 6-foot left-hander was impressive once again at his second PBR event. Folds uses his powerful body to generate leverage with his fastball (77-79) from his overhand slot. He has natural cut to the pitch and it makes for an uncomfortable look. His curveball shows 12-6 action at (62-63) and his changeup still lacks some commitment at (65). He continues to show promise and it looks like he will be able to use all three of the offerings effectively in the future. He always shows good results and is still a pup on the mound. Will be one to keep an eye on in the 2021 class in Georgia.

 

6/19/2018- North Georgia Trials 

Folds is a 6-foot, 175-pound 2-way player who shows promise on the mound. He has an athletic pitchers frame and pitches from the stretch only, aggressively using a high overhand slot. Folds creates good angle to the plate with his fast ball (78-80). His changeup (68-70) has deception and late sink when down. The curveball flashes good 12-6 type action when he gets out front and on top of it. At the plate, Folds sets up with a balanced straight away stance. And shows strength in a mostly pull approach. He projects to have power in the future and showed a present exit velo of 79 mph. Overall Folds is a good looking young left handed pitcher who has the makings of future stuff and deception. Will be a close follow on the mound going forward.
