Scouting Report: Bryan Brickhouse, RHP, The Woodlands (TX) HS (2011 Draft)

November 3, 2010

Bryan Brickhouse comes from Texas, where they grow the big strong high school right-handers by the bushel, so it seems. My conclusion is that I liked this guy and that he has some things to work on in order to become a really top shelf guy. That in no way, shape or form is a dig at the guy, because he does have the chance to be a top-shelfer.

Games Seen: 2, Innings: 5 (2010 Area Codes)
Wind-up: Semi-wind.
Arm Action: Fair
Arm Angle: ¾
Delivery: Fair

Arm/Delivery Mechanics: Sweeping arm action through back, arm has to catch up to body, delivery comes open 3B side, limits extension and falls off 1B side.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Burly physically matured features with wide, high hips. Broad shoulders, long limbs, strong chest.  

STRENGTHS: FB 90-94, comfort zone 91-92, mostly straight with occasional sink and run. Hard slider, 83-85, go-to weapon, hard tilt when stays on top. CB 75-77, shows 12/6 proper rotation when on top.

WEAKNESSES: Needs to stay in mechanics; overthrew instead of letting it come, too many fastballs started up. Correctable mechanical flaws with talent to absorb changes and succeed. Straight CHG 81, lacks feel at this time. 

SUMMATION: Strong-bodied young RHS w/chance to become middle-rotation ML starter. Must continue to refine location and repetition. Has the big body and the big arm to get there.
