RHP Jeremy Hellickson (Des Moines, IA): Hellickson built on his strong performance at the PG Spring Top Prospect Showcase, throwing three strong innings at the Pre-Draft. The 6-0 right hander’s fastball was steadily 91-94 mph and, as he usually does, he pitched to locations effectively. After an inning to find his release point, Hellickson’s curveball was a power pitch at 75-77 mph. He still shows some hesitance to use his 78-80 mph change up, but that pitch is there when pro hitters need to see it. Hellickson couldn’t be in a better situation for the draft as he has signed with LSU. UPDATE: Hellickson pitched a high school game May 24th. He faced the minimum and only lost a perfect game when strike 3 hit the catchers mask allowing the hitter to reach base. Hellickson then got the next hitter to roll one back to the mound and turned a double play. He was consistently 92-94 with some reported at 95-96. He was still throwing 92-94 in the 7th inning. Stock went up! Only 6-0 but maybe the best pitcher in high school baseball. In fact, we think he is.

Scouts attending the Spring Top Prospect Showcase couldn’t have expected much more from Hellickson, especially in the chilly conditions. He was as sharp, if not sharper, than he has been all spring. Hellickson’s delivery was sound and relaxed and his arm action smooth and effortless. Most of his fastballs were in the 90-93 mph range and he spotted the ball very well, especially on the inside half of the plate. His best pitch during the four innings, though, was a nasty mid-70’s curveball that the Perfect Game scouts named “Big City” after a few hitters froze on it. “Big City”, as in when Major League teams play. “That was a Big City curveball that Hellickson just threw.” Hellickson didn’t throw many of his 78-80 mph change ups but that’s often a plus pitch for him, too. In 4 innings, Hellickson struck out 9 hitters, coaxed 2 to ground back to the mound and broke a bat on a weak grounder to second base. You aren't going to see many more talented or polished high school pitchers anywhere in any class than Hellickson. He has signed with LSU.

Jeremy Hellickson is a 2005 RHP from Des Moines, Iowa, with a 6'0", 170 lb. frame. Hellickson took an afternoon off from his "off season" basketball pursuits (he’s a top notch point guard) to throw for the assembled scouts. He looks like he’s in excellent shape and appeared especially strong in his hips and thighs. Hellickson threw easily and effortlessly and was steadily 88-90 mph on his fastball with hard boring life inside to right handed hitters. His curveball was big and very sharp and mostly 74-75 mph. His change had serious sinking action at 73-74 mph. Despite being in the middle of basketball, he showed his usual outstanding command of everything. This kid is a natural talent and it's real hard to compare him to other high school star pitchers. This was just a winter workout for this AFLAC All-American to show the scouts that he was healthy and in great shape, and he did that with no problem. Hellickson looks like he’s ready for an excellent spring.

RHP/SS Jeremy Hellickson: Hellickson’s outings this spring have been more along the lines of extended bullpens and opportunities to work on different pitches. The USA National 16U team star has averaged about 2 strikeouts per inning while throwing in the 87-91 mph range consistently during league play. Hellickson was solidly 89-91 at the Spring Showcase as well and he throws so easily, you think that he has an extra 2-4 mph in his arm at any one time if he really needed it. He’s thrown a lot of 2-seam fastballs, too, and is getting excellent life on that pitch. Hellickson’s curveball and change up have also been solid. Hellickson has worked on his slide step out of the stretch some, as his high leg kick gives him an extremely slow release time to home plate with runners in stealing position. Hellickson’s defense at shortstop has been excellent. His arm strength is obvious and easy and he has very good actions and hands. Hellickson could definitely play shortstop defensively at the Division I level if he wasn’t such a great pitching prospect. His bat is not his best tool, but it also is very good. One of the best high school pitchers in America.

Hellickson is an "05" RHP/SS from Iowa. At 6'0/165 he has lots of room for projection (his dad is a good 6'3 or taller). What needs little projection is Hellickson's ability. He's fast becoming recognized as one of the top pitchers in the country. When he pitches you're going to see 90-92 nearly everytime. The only exception is when he's having a good day and the velocity will go a bit higher. He has a very good breaking ball that he will throw in nearly any count, for a strike or to get a hitter to chase. He's also a very good athlete and shortstop, but the arm is so special it's hard to think of him as anything but a pitcher. Jeremy has a very bright future and is one of the top prospects in the "05" class. He's a natural with an extra gear in his right arm. If you watch him from the side you will see that extra gear. It's from the wrist to the finger tips. This is just one of many reports coming on this kid.

Hellickson might be the top "05" pitcher in America. He has touched mid 90s already and throws consistently 90-92. His arm action is as pretty as it gets. It looks like he has an extra gear at release point that allows for even more hand speed. He throws a pretty lively heater and a real nice curve ball in the mid to better 70s. He pretty much sticks with those two pitches, but will flash a quality change once in awhile, just for kicks. He has outstanding command of everything he throws. While Jeremy is only 6'0, he is very young and should grow a lot over the next couple years. His dad is 6'3 or 6'4. Jeremy still has that baby face look. Being one of the top pitchers out there it is easy to forget that he is an excellent athlete. A very smooth shortstop with of course one cannon for an arm. He swings the bat well and he's very much a 2-way prospect. It will be fun to watch him for the next couple years. It's always fun to watch the very best.

Hellickson is a 5 foot 11, 165 pound right-hander with a laser fastball and loose arm. He is only a Sophomore and showed that he can flat out pitch. A sophomore having 3 solid pitches that fill the zone would normally grab our attention but when the fastball sits in the 88-91 mph range and touches 92 it jumps out at you. Even more interesting is the low effort that he showed with his delivery. From a 3/4 arm slot, Hellickson also threw a 74-76 mph curveball and 75 mph change-up. His fastball had very good life at times and he threw more 90 mph pitches than any other number. In fact, his last pitch was 90! And we would not be surprised to hear about some offensive numbers out of him as he showed us a solid swing, line drive hitting ability and some of the best SS actions in the entire showcase. No question his future is on the hill but there is not much that Hellickson can't do. He is one of the best arms we have seen in the 2005 class this year.
