Johnny Volk is a 2007 RHP/C with a 5'9'', 170 lb. frame from Quartz Hill, CA, who attends Quartz Hill HS. Volk has a solid frame with present strength. On the mound he throws from a 3/4 arm slot with a long arm circle on the back side. He has good arm action and arm speed, and throws with a balanced delivery. Volk has good control of all three pitches. His fastball topped out at 85 mph, while working in the 82-85 mph range. He gets late life on his fastball with riding action deep in the zone. Volk also mixes in a 70 mph curveball with sharp 11 to 5 break, and a 77 mph straight changeup. He works fast on the mound keeping his defense ready. He did not allow a run in his 3 IP while striking out 5. At the plate he hits from a slightly closed stance and shows good bat speed. He has a short swing and makes consistent contact with projectable power. Defensively he has arm strength behind the plate with pop times around 2.00. He also blocks balls well, and has good all-around catching skills. Two-way prospect, and is an excellent student as well.
