Richard "Jon" Gulbransen is a very strong 6-0, 195 lb left handed pitcher from Wisconsin who had a very impressive showcase. He throws from a high 3/4's release point with a long and low arm swing in back and very good extension out front. Gulbransen has a very fast arm and it works smoothly. He has good balance in his delivery. Gulbransen's fastball was 84-86 mph with some late life to it. He threw a 79 mph change up that was a bit hard compared to his fastball but is a good starting point to develop the pitch. Gulbransen's curveball was a sharp 71 mph downer curveball that had a shorter slider like break. Aside from his raw stuff, the most impressive thing about Gulbransen was his approach to pitching. He worked very fast and was aggressive about throwing strikes and attacking hitters early in the count. Gulbransen is a good overall athlete who can field his position and swing the bat with some power. He is a very good student as well. Very good follow.

Gulbransen is a 6-0 left handed pitcher from Wisconsin and a member of the 2007 class. Despite his 195 lb frame, Gulbransen has a young looking body that will firm up and get strong with hard work. He threw very well in Fort Myers, striking out 7 hitters in 4 scoreless innings. Gulbransen has a good in-line delivery and a smooth, tension free arm stroke. His fastball was 80-81 mph with good running action and Gulbransen showed the ability to hit spots with this pitch. His curveball had sharp break at times at 63-67 mph but he tends to drop his release point at other times and get under the ball. Gulbransen also showed some ability as a hitter, especially in batting practice. He has an aggressive pull type approach and consistently hit the ball hard up the RCF alley with nice power. Overall, this is a good young baseball player who should continue to improve and could become one of the better prospects in the upper Midwest. Gulbransen is also a very good student.
