Chris Withrow is a 2007 right hand pitcher from Midland Christian HS, residing in Odessa, TX. He has a strong, powerful build on his 6'3" 185 lb. frame, that still has some room to grow. He has a very good athletic pitcher's build. With raw stuff and a repertoire that was pretty complete, Withrow was ranked #34 among the PG National Top 85 pitchers. Withrow has an easy 88-92 mph fastball that came out of his high 3/4 slot. With an easy and fairly short arm action, his fastball can be classified as sneaky due to the excellent extension he gets with his arm on the front side of his delivery. Withrow did a nice job of repeating that delivery, demonstrating his athleticism on the mound. His arm stroke and arm speed are both very good, suggesting a bit more velocity in the coming years, perhaps 3-4 more mph. Even if he doesn't gain much more, he showed the ability to pitch to all parts of the strike zone with the fastball and on the arm side showed late life and good sink. His secondary pitches were a 73-75 mph breaking ball that he used well, changing its shape from traditional curveball to a slurvy two plane breaker. That pitch had good spin on it and can be an out pitch as he showed the ability to throw quality strikes with it. Withrow also showed good feel of his 81 mph change-up. He was aggressive to the zone with everything and at times may have thrown too many strikes. In time he will learn to go out of the zone when he wants or needs to. Withrow is a top end D1 caliber pitcher and should also get strong draft consideration this spring.
PG Grade 9.5
