Scouting USA Baseball: The Pitchers


Asa Lacy, LHP, Texas A&M, 2020– As a slender 6-foot-3, 180 pound high school senior, Lacy was selected in the 31st round of the 2017 MLB Draft out of Kerrville, TX by Cleveland, but did not sign. During my cross-check look that spring he threw exclusively fastballs throughout his six-inning start ranging from 84-89 mph. Now standing strong and durable at 6-foot-4, 215 pounds and armed with a heater up to 97 he could be the poster boy for what projectable high school arms who opt for college and develop into a potential top picks look like. On this most recent look with the CNT, Lacy sat 92-95 mph with his fastball which showed good downplane from a high three-quarter slot. He set up on the far third base side of the rubber, landed soft with good balance and direction to the plate. There is some effort and head dunk to his delivery, but nothing that detracts from his starter profile at this point as his upper and lower halves stay in sync and his arm works. His command was a bit rusty as he missed spots and allowed two hits and one walk in two-thirds of an inning. His secondary offerings continue to develop…
