TN: JUCO: Roane State


Tim Kay
PBR Tennessee Director of Scouting

On Saturday, we were present for the first three games as part of the TCCAA Fall Showcase, hosted by Lipscomb University, as we had to leave early to prepare for an early morning trip to Memphis on Sunday.  Saturday brought together Chattanooga State, Dyersburg State, Roane State and Southwest Tennessee.  It is important to note that there was no pregame I/O before these games, so getting a read on overall defense was difficult.  Below is a look at Roane State and the players that jumped out to us during their first game.  They were previously seen here, which was their first inter-squad.  If we saw them and wrote them up in the previous write-up, it will be a briefer write-up this time around.


KOBY SILVY / RHP / CHRISTIAN COUNTY, KY / 2017

FB (84-88, T89), SL (73-76), CH (78-80)

6-4, 201-pound righty showed improved velocity and showed the secondary pitches over his 2 inning outing, which we did not see in the 1 inning inter-squad look.  Occasionally rolls through his balance point, can create some timing issues for himself and results in him spraying the zone at times.  FB shows short arm-side run.  ¾ tilt SL w/ proper shape and rotation.  Can get big at times.  Flashes as a put-away pitch.  CH w/ short fade.  Generated 2 swing and misses on 18 swings.
