RHP/SS Seth Garrison: Garrison has added pitching to his baseball resume this spring and the Perfect Game “Pitcher vs. Player” debate on Garrison is perhaps stronger than on any other 2004 prospect in the country. The switch-hitter swung the bat very well from both sides of the plate in Cedar Rapids, perhaps better than we’ve seen him swing it before. We found out afterwards that Garrison has been swinging exclusively right handed this spring but it didn’t show in his left handed cut. Garrison’s defense at short or third is smooth and polished. While he didn’t touch the 92-93 mph velocity we’ve heard he’s thrown this spring during his high school schedule, Garrison hit 88 mph and has very polished secondary pitches and pitching mechanics for someone of his relative experience. Overall, this is just a quality athlete with a wide range of skills and tools who has the potential to get much better. Garrison has signed to go to Arizona State depending on the outcome of the draft.

Garrison is a beautiful, smooth athlete who we don’t feel we got a good look at in Lincoln, particularly with a bat in his hands. Garrison isn’t an especially quick or fast athlete, but his smoothness, balance and above average arm strength from in the hole may enable him to play shortstop at higher levels. He has fast hands and a quick release on ground balls, especially to his backhand, and plays defense with confidence. If he probably won't play shortstop because of range factors as he gets older, he should become an outstanding defensive third baseman. Garrison took a good batting practice left handed, showing a smooth, controlled stroke when he stayed back on the ball, but during live competition he continually jumped out on his front side and pulled off the ball, resulting in numerous empty at bats. We don’t know whether this was because he was simply overanxious in the showcase environment or whether it’s an indicator of a bigger problem. We do know the book on him is that he's a big time hitting prospect. We had Garrison throw off the mound for an inning and this is a facet of his game that no one should forget about. The smoothness in the rest of his game was evident in his delivery and arm stroke, despite limited experience on the mound, and Garrison threw a steady 87-89 mph with a nice 73 mph curveball. There’s much more there as a pitcher, no doubt. In fact, if Seth were a pitcher only, he might be one of the best in the country. He should get serious early round consideration and end up signing with a major college power program. Seth carries a 3.2 GPA.
