Jared Leeds is a 2005 right handed pitcher from Port St. Lucie, Florida, with a strong 6'0", 190 lb. frame. Leeds has a compact body, and throws from a 3/4 arm slot with very good arm speed. His fastball topped out at 86 mph, and he worked from 80-85 during his three innings of work. Leeds got some good arm side life on his fastball, and threw what looked like a split finger fastball around 78 mph. He had solid command of his split finger, as well as his curveball that had tightness at times from 67-68 mph. Leeds was inconsistent with his release point on the curveball, but it showed promise. Leeds struck out 5 batters in his three innings on the mound, and his last two innings were very good. He is a good college prospect.

Jared Leeds -- Leeds is a physically strong and mature junior pitcher from Florida with very good arm strength. He has good athletic actions on the mound as well. Leeds threw lots of 88 mph fastballs and many had hard bat breaking boring action to them. Leeds throws both a curveball and a slider and we like the slider better now, although both show lots of potential. The slider was up to 80 mph and had some depth. The key right now for Leeds is keeping his arm stroke and release point up. When he’s throwing downhill everything works for him but he’ll drop his arm and sling the ball occasionally and that leaves everything up and flat. Another thing we really like about Leeds is that he really wants the ball. We literally had to tell him "You can’t pitch anymore" or we couldn’t have kept him off the mound. Jared is a young prospect who could be really very good. He also shows ability with the bat. Keep a very close eye on this kid!
