2013 Perfect Game All-American Michael Kopech embodies everything that scouts love to see in a top young pitching prospect. He also embodies many of the things that make the veteran decision makers wary of getting too excited about 18-year old pitchers.

The plus side starts with a prototype righthanded pitcher’s build. Kopech has a narrow, low waist with a long torso and long arms to go with a high degree of flexibility throughout his body. He has plenty of room to get stronger without even gaining much weight, and is regarded as an above average athlete for a primary pitching prospect.
