WEATHERFORD, TX - Four Junior College Teams competed on Friday at Weatherford College, here are some of the highlights from day two. Look for more in-depth reports with video in the next week.


Jace Embry, RHP, McLennan JC, Soph.
Embry has a thick, sturdy frame at 6-foot-3, 249-pounds. The right-hander works from a ¾ slot with a long, quick arm stroke. Lands closed, fairly athletic, repeatable delivery. Throws a heavy fastball with arm side run that was 90-93 mph in the first inning, settling into the 89-92 mph range. His slider has 10-4 shape and good lateral action at 75-79 mph. Only threw a couple of changeups at 81 and 84 mph.

Shane Daughety, RHP, McLennan JC, Soph.
Texas State Transfer. 6-foot-2, 197-pound frame. Sinker-Slider guy, strike thrower, works from a high-¾ slot with a compact arm stroke, some effort and cross-body delivery. Fastball has good arm side sink and life at 85-88 mph. Last three fastballs he threw were 88 mph. Slider has 10-4 shape and is a tough pitch on right-handed hitters at 75-77 mph for swings and misses. Made quick work of the batters he faced and got better during his outing.

Bailey Horn, LHP, McLennan JC, Soph.
6-foot-1, 214-pound, strong frame. Horn looks like the type of player that does everything full throttle. Not only does the left-hander have a max effort delivery with his fastball sitting 89-91 mph, but he absolutely got after it during his post outing conditioning sprints in right field. The left-hander works from a high slot with a quick arm stroke, aggressive delivery, lands open. Curveball has good downer 1-7 shape and depth at 76-78 mph. Throws a hard changeup at 81-82 mph with fastball arm speed.
