Lonsway became even more famous after his 12-strikeout start at Georgia Tech in Week Two when he sat 92-94, and up to 96 mph with fastball and paired with a plus-to-better curveball. That momentum slowed a bit in Week Four with a 70-pitch, two-inning, eight walk performance against Stetson. He ended the shortened 2020 season with a whopping 42 strikeouts in 18 innings, but his 18 walks, two hit batters and five wild pitches are concerning. Nonetheless, he pitched his way onto the radar of scouting directors and top three round consideration this summer and profiles as a reliever at the pro level.

8/16/19: The 6-foot-2, 195 pound lefty had struggled with his control (9 walks in 7 IP) in the Cape previous to my look, however he did anything but against Chatham. Working quickly, he pounded the zone throughout his 20 pitch, 14 for strikes, relief appearance. With average arm speed and a hard to repeat delivery his fastball sat 87-88 mph with late sink to his gloveside. From a high three-quarter slot he spotted the pitch to both sides of the plate. His best pitch was an average curveball which he kept down in the zone at 74-76 mph. When “on” it was tough on left-handed hitters. He also mixed in an 83 mph changeup with fastball arm speed. Finishing the season with a 4.55 ERA, Lonsway pitched through a lot of traffic on the bases allowing 19 runners in 12 IP. Despite the inconsistent summer, he will head into the 2020 spring season as one of the more talented prospects in the Big Ten. With greater consistency of both his control and breaking ball, he is a likely Day Two talent. (Seifert)

Game Report: Athletic 6-foot-2, 192-pound lefty is one of the most dominant arms in the 2017 class. I have seen Lonsway throw a handful of times, and the southpaw just gets better and better each outing. Facing the back-to-back state champion Defiance, Lonsway was dominant, allowing just two hits while striking out nine in a 1-0 shutout victory. The fastball sat 91-93, touching 94 mph a couple times, including once from the stretch. The southpaw settled in at 90-92 from the 3rd inning on. The fastball shows natural run to the arm-side. To go along with the 4-seamer, Seth has a 2-seam fastball that he was throwing with good movement at 84-86 mph. The offspeed offerings include a curveball and a slider. The curve, which can be seen at the 1:16 mark was 73-74 with good depth and 12/6 action. The slider, which can be seen at the 9-second mark, can be a filthy out-pitch for the smooth throwing lefty. Lonsway, an Ohio State commit, could be the top draft prospect for the Buckeye State and today he showed exactly why.

1/18/15
6-foot, 165-pound athletic frame. On the mound the southpaw has a slow tempo delivery with good direction. Throws from a high-¾ slot with his fastball sitting 83-85 mph with arm-side run. He uses a breaking ball with good depth and 12/6 action at 69-70 mph. Seth did showcase a slider with side-to-side action and late break at 72 mph. Three-pitch lefty that was impressive and will be interesting to see how he progresses. One to keep an eye on.
