Scouting Video: Kohl Stewart, RHP, St. Pius X HS (2013 Draft)

By
May 7, 2013

Kohl Stewart probably has a lot of ink and eyes on him this spring and I haven’t seen him since August. So when I saw him, he was a big, strong physical kid with a good arm. Beyond that, well, any sort of hyperbole on my part would be pre-draft jocksniffing journalism, and that ain’t my style. Big kid, throws hard, let’s see what happens next. All I can really tell from this video is that at the time it was filmed, he was a thrower and not a pitcher.  Or that’s all that I will say in public that I can infer from even the quickest look at anyone I see.

Scouting Video: Kohl Stewart, RHP, St. Pius X HS (2013 Draft)

By

Kohl Stewart is apparently the big name from Texas this year. Every year, Texas always has a guy or two who can pick between pitching and playing quarterback in college. This was the guy who touched 95 at the Petco game. I had a lot of 94s. Lots of fastball run against right-handed hitters. Chance to develop an above-average slider. Chance to have an average change. I just told you his OFP without telling you his numbers. Loose arm, I’m on the record for saying the elbow sleeve scared me, and has a chance to be a number two starter based on my few looks at him in California over the summer. Good arm, yes, but really a guy who needs a lot of work. A guy who doesn’t have a lot of lower half stride. A guy asking his arm to do an awful lot. Really kind of looks like a quarterback pitching more than a pitcher at this point in time. So we’ll see what happens in the coming months.

2012 Area Codes Day 1: Simpson Hits Homer

By

Well, I guess the BP power wasn’t a fluke. Of course you had to be up and ready to go in the ballpark at 8 a.m. on Sunday morning to see this guy’s easy hands, but he made up for the guys who slept in some eight hours later with a couple of shots that made Texas ballplayer Corey Simpson the story for Opening Day of the Please Let Me Get Drafted Good Games.
