Northwoods Scouting Trail: July 30Prospects
The Northwoods scouting trail continues with prospect summaries from Willmar, St. Cloud, and Duluth. Several quality arms, some big bodied sluggers and stud infielders between the three teams. One of the most talent filled weeks I’ve had this summer.
Jake Stevenson, Senior, RHP, St. Cloud (Minnesota)
6-foot-4, 220 pounds. Tall, athletic build. Long arm path, ¾ slot. Easy, loose delivery. Average arm speed. Throws three pitches – FB, CB, CH. FB sat 91-94, above-average velocity. Inconsistent command. CB is his best pitch. Big arc, 11/5 shape, 76-77 mph. CH sat on 80, average pitch as well. Threw sparingly. Above average velo and a plus CB are what make this upperclassman an intriguing prospect. He had average control, but has been hit around most of the year. Pitched two and one-third innings. Allowed two runs on four hits while walking and striking out two each.
