PBR Future Games

Athletic 6-foot, 180-pound frame with some projection left to it. Works with some pace and intent. Down and out stride getting down the mound and lands closed. Three-quarter arm slow that is short and quick on the backside with hand and arm speed getting through. The fastball sat 83-86 with some heavy sink that got multiple swings and misses under right handed hitters' hands. Controlled both sides of the plate well at the bottom of the zone. It was a two pitch mix with the slider playing a heavy role in Gladden's success on the mound during his outing. The slider shows swing and miss potential at 74-77 with depth. Gladden projects as a middle-back end arm that has the ability to get weak contact and strikeouts with two strong pitches. The arm moves well enough to be able to make some more gains, but even where he is the slider plays well enough to fit into a bullpen/rotation at the next level.

Preseason All-State Session I

Positional Profile: C/RHP
Body: 5’11”, 160 pounds. Athletic, lanky, projectable frame.
DeliveryStarts with quick, side rocker step into a chest high leg kick. Quick, twitchy delivery and gets good extension over his front leg. Long levers provide good deception and ability to hide the baseball through delivery. Creates a good explosion but does tend to fall off to the 1B side of the mound.
Arm Action: RH. Throws downhill out of a high three-quarter arm slot.
FB: T83 mph, 81-83 mph. Displayed some arm-side run.
CB: 69-71 mph. Thrown out of nearly the same release point as FB, tight 12/6 action.
CH: 75-77 mph. Good, deceptive action of the hand.
