Cassidy is one of the most projectable pitchers we saw in Fort Myers. He has a lean, loose 6-2, 180 lb body and a very fluid, tension free arm stroke. We’d seen him throw 90 from the outfield this summer but this was our first chance to see him on the mound. Unfortunately, we don’t think Cassidy was close to 100% physically when his turn came. During his first game, Cassidy made an incredible diving effort on a fly ball and came down hard on his left, non-throwing, shoulder and may have suffered a partial dislocation. He insisted on throwing the second game and was still able to throw 85-88 mph with above average command and good running life. Cassidy’s 74 mph change up was his best secondary pitch and his 74-75 mph curveball showed some very good promise, too. This is a young pitcher that, for scouts, is well worth keeping a close eye on this spring. He's an excellent athlete, 6.8 runner, plus arm, and he can hit. Highest level DI prospect that should create some serious draft interest.

Cassidy is an "04" RHP/OF with exceptional tools. At 6'1/180 he has a good strong athletic body with some projection left. We screwed up by scheduling him to pitch, he throws 90 mph, on the last game which was rained out. He is definitely one of the better pitching prospects and 2-way players in the Northeast. showing unusual class and confidence he didn't complain a bit. In fact, his family didn't complain either even though they had every reason to be disappointed. Back to the player, Cassidy did show up and put on a show. He ran a 6.80 on a very slow track. We would grade him an easy above average MLB runner. He threw 90 mph from the outfield with outstanding arm action. He showed excellent body control and we graded his MLB plus arm a 65/70 from the outfield. At the plate he had a line drive approach that showed power potential. Everything he does looks very natural and under control. This kid is a player! Jim will get serious draft interest and can play at any college in the country.
