Joseph Bittle: Bittle was one of the very best prospects at the Unsigned Senior Showcase and is very capable of pitching at any Division I school in the country in our opinion. We’ve seen him before and were very surprised that he hadn’t signed yet, in fact. He has a live and slender 6-1 frame with a loose, quick arm. Bittle’s fastball was 86-88 mph and he threw plenty of 88’s. He’ll throw some two-seamers to left handed hitters that have good running life to them. Bittle’s strikeout pitch is a slider at 81-84 mph that has some sharp late action to it. He throws a 71 mph change up that shows plenty of promise. This kid is good and projects to be even better.

Bittle is an "04" RHP from Texas. At 6'1/160 he has a very projectable frame. His arm action, mechanics and body project in a big way. And he's already a DI pitcher in our book. He showed upper 80s velocity with a smooth fluid arm in Ft Myers. His breaking balls both Curve and slider are excellent pitches. The changeup makes four big time pitches this kid has. He's going to throw 90 or better before long with good command of three or four quality pitches. In our minds, this kid is a highest level DI pitcher with a possible big pro future. Joseph is a very good student. Somebody is going to pick up a big sleeper out of Texarkana.
