Delivery is compact, in line and repeatable. Curveball at 63-64 showed 1/7 rotation and changeup was thrown at near fastball arm speed at 69-70.


Ellis attended this event as a pitcher-only. He displayed advanced mechanics for his age. Very balanced and with a smooth rhythm and delivery. FB sat 72-73 mph, coupled with a CB at 58-60 mph, and a CH at 62-64 mph. His change up shows the potential to be a put out pitch for him in the future. Overall, Ellis will be a pitcher to watch in the 2023 class.


Initiates swing from slightly open set up with stride to closed without gaining ground. There is sway in backside load. Separation is adequate. Subtle top half dive is present. Weight shift and backside release are slightly passive. Swing is short and hands work directly to the baseball. Athleticism is evident.

Defensively,hands are aoft and feet work well around bag. there subtle tendency to let ball get deep. Transfer is clean throwing motion has length.

On the mound, works out of high 3/4 arm slot with excellent balance and rhythm. Arm action is long and loose. First base fall is created by limited top half drive over front side. FB sat 70-72 with considerable arm side run. CB command at 57-58 was inconsistent but at best offering flashed 1-7 shape with moderate depth and late break.
