Nevin Griffith is a 2007 RHP with a 6'2'', 185 lb. frame from Brandon, FL who attends Middleton HS. Griffith just threw a bullpen from the mound at the Pre-draft and didn't face hitters. He threw loose and easy and was steady in the 88-90 mph range with little effort. He's been up to mid 90s area a lot from last fall through this spring, He repeated his delivery well and showed a long, smooth arm action with excellent extension out front. Griffith only threw a 74 mph curveball, although we've seen a low 80's slider in the past and heard this spring that this is he better breaking pitch. With his arm action we'd believe that. Griffith also threw a couple of change ups and this should become a good pitch for him.

Nevin Griffith is a 2007 RHP with a 6'2'', 185 lb. frame from Brandon FL, who attends Middleton HS. He has an excellent young pitcher's body, with long arms and legs and loose actions. Griffith was one of the big surprises of the event and put himself high on the prospect lists as a result. He's made some adjustments to his mechanics since last summer that have really benefitted his stuff. Griffith has a long and flowing arm action and does a good job staying back in his delivery and letting his arm get organized. His arm comes through quickly and the result was a 92 mph fastball that topped out at 94 mph and it looks like there's a lot more there. Griffith has the looseness and arm speed to envision as a mid-90's guy with no problem. Griffith's long arm aciton possess a problem for breaking ball; he threw both 72 mph curveball and 81 mph slider, with the slider showing the most potential. That will be the next step in his development is refining a breaking pitch. He's a high ceiling young pitcher who is coming on quickly. Griffith has signed with Florida International.

Nevin Griffith is a 2007 right hand pitcher from Middleton HS, residing in Brandon, FL. Griffith has an athletic and lean body type on his 6'2" 185 lb. frame. He should continue to gain some size and strength in the coming years. Griffith did not just leap out as a top guy at PG National, but the more you watched him, the more he was appreciated. Ultimately Griffith was ranked #57 among PG National Top 85 pitchers, which again, was the deepest collection of arms ever at a showcase. Griffith has a good arm action that suggests more velocity and durability in the future. He is long on the backside and quite loose, with good arm speed. There is some effort in his stroke and some cross body stride in his delivery that are causes of concern. Griffith's delivery was mostly an upper body delivery, so he will need to incorporate more lower half as he develops. He touched up to 91 with his fastball and sat 87-89 with decent run. His best pitch was a 81 mph slider that was hard out of his hand and stayed that way into the zone. Griffith showed good feel for that pitch. He also threw his 68 mph curveball better and better as his outing went along. The action is a bit rolly, but his feel and confidence in that pitch make it quite usable. Griffith would appear to be a college bound right hander, but it is not out of the question to consider him getting attention from the area scouts.
