RHP Lance McCullers (Tampa Jesuit HS, FL): McCullers got hit pretty hard but he still topped out at 100 on the scoreboard (I heard more like 98 on the scouts guns) and flashed the hard curveball and change up that could become plus pitches. His pitchability still has to improve but it’s hard to argue with the raw stuff.

RHP Lucas Sims (Brookwood HS, Lawrenceville, GA): Sims topped out at 98 on the scoreboard but pitched consistently at 92-94 mph. His change up and curveball are both potential plus pitches and he has a very high degree of confidence in his change.

RHP Carson Fulmer (All Saints Academy, Lakeland, FL): Despite his max effort delivery, Fulmer has all the ingredients of a top of the line starter. He sits at 94-95 and his low 80’s curveball and change up give him three quality pitches that he consistently throws for strikes.

RHP Clate Schmidt (Alatoona HS, Acworth, GA): Schmidt’s mechanics resemble McCullers and his stuff is similar to Sims, with not quite the quality or consistency to his secondary pitches. He has relatively limited pitching experience, so expect those secondary pitches to continue to improve with time.

RHP Walker Weickel (Olympia HS, Orlando, FL): Weickel was clearly the most polished of the top prospect pitchers in Lakeland, he commanded the bottom of the strike zone like a pro with 3 pitches. His issue now is that both his curveball and change up lack firmness.
