Scouting Report

4/09/19

 

VA/DC Scout Blog

Eaton is a left-handed pitcher with a projectable athletic build standing around 6-foot-1. Came on in late relief for Prince George. His fastball sat at 77-80 and touched 81 once, but what stood out most is the significant arm side run he got. He got numerous swings and misses on the fastball that kept taking off away from right handers. The curveball wasn't working today as it had more side to side shape and he couldn't locate it in warmups, or in the game. The breaking ball sat at 68-70 when he threw it. There is present arm speed on the pitch, but just needs to get a consistent feel for it.

Preseason All State Session I
Athletic projectable frame at 6-foot-1, 175-pounds. Side to side rocker step to start his windup getting to a consistent balance point. Engages the lower half early and gets down the mound well. Lands on line at finish and consistently stays in line to the plate. Arm was pretty clean and showed some arm speed throwing from a high three-quarter arm slot. Fastball showed carry through the zone at 80-82 mph. Curveball had a tight 1/7 shape at 69-71. Slider was 70-72. Changeup showed some late fade and present arm speed being thrown at 72-74. All offspeed played well off the fastball and showed intent on all three secondary pitches. Athletic slightly crouched setup at the plate from the right side. Stance starts square with a knee to knee leg lift landing on line. Loads the front shoulder closed with a slight wrap and bat is quick and flat to the ball with an uphill finish. Lower half finishes completely and exit velo was 83 mph on the day. Had one of the more impressive arms from the outfield posting a positional velocity of 87 mph. Feet were active on approach with solid glove presentation. Arm action is longer, but showed solid arm speed getting it through from a high three-quarter arm slot. Home-1st time was 4.75.
