D.J. Swatscheno is a 2007 left hand pticher from Flanagan HS, residing in Pembroke Pines, FL. He has a strong, lean, athletic build on his 6'2" 190 lb. frame that still has room to fill out and get stronger. Swatscheno was one of the more complete pitchers in the event, one of a number of high quality lefties with good stuff and excellent feel. He was ranked #22 among PG National Top 85 pitchers and looks like he is going to win a a lot of games in his future. Swatscheno pitches from an over the top slot with a quick, clean arm action. He starts his delivery with an over the head wind-up, creating good rhythm that works well for the athletic lefty. His fastball touched up to 90 and he pitched in the 87-89 range. Swatscheno can pitch in and out with his fastball, which he uses well to set up his high quality secondary pitches. His curveball is a plus pitch not only because of the quality of its action, but because of the way he pitches with it. Swatscheno ranged his curveball velocity from 72-80 mph and also showed the ability to change it's shape. It would be easy to say that the higher velocity breaking balls were slider, but they were still big and shaped like curveballs. He throws that pitch with plus spin and gets hard downward bite, at all speeds. Swatscheno can use his curveball as an out pitch or he can pitch with it, stealing strikes and throwing it in fastball counts. His 80 mph change-up is also a quality offering. He gets good movement on the change-up and threw it with good feel. Swatscheno has the repertoire and pitchability that all should make him a big winner, likely at a top D1 program first, then in pro ball. He is going to get some area scout attention this spring, especially if he makes a move to the 88-92 range with his fastball, while maintaining the quality of his secondary stuff. He is a good one.

D.J. Swatscheno is a 2007 LHP from Flanagan HS in Pembroke Pines, FL, with a 6'2'', 180 lb. frame. He has very good present strength and looks bigger than his listed size. He has wide, strong shoulders and long limbs. Swatcheno throws from a high 3/4's to overhand release point, which with his height and long arms gives him an excellent downward plane to the plate on his pitches. He starts out his delivery with a high leg kick and hitters don't have much chance to see the ball before he throws it. Swatscheno does have some effort in his release. His fastball gets very hard running life at 86-89 mph and has life up in the strike zone as well as down. Swatscheno's curveball is a sharp, hard breaking downer at 75 mph. He also threw a 79 mph change up. When Swatscheno is in the strike zone with his pitches he is very difficult to hit. His command isn't raw by any means but it's still developing. With his body and remaining projection Swatscheno could be a big time power left hander in the future. He has all the pitches right now and just needs to keep getting stronger and polish his delivery. Top Level National Follow!
