Rob Whitley is a 2006 right handed pitcher from George Washington HS in Danville, VA, with a medium 5'11", 175 lb. frame. He has a very long arm action with a high 3/4 to overhand release point and a very, very quick arm. He works through a high leg kick with good balance and leverage with good extension at his release point. Whitley's fastball topped out at 90 in Atlanta with slight arm side life. His best pitch is a 69 mph curveball that has true 12/6 downer break and very good sharpness and depth. When he's staying on top of his curveball and throwing it near the strike zone, Whitley is very hard to hit. He likes throwing inside to right handed hitters, which makes him even harder to hit when he's in rhythm. Whitley also threw a couple of 79 mph change ups that can be a good pitch for him in the future. Whitley is a good student who has committed to Virginia Tech.

Whitley is a 5-11 right handed pitcher from Virginia who we’ve seen regularly since last June. We’ve also seen him get better every time out. This junior has a very quick arm and good present physical strength. He has a high leg kick and deliberate delivery with a high ¾’s release point and nice extension out front. Whitley fastball is regularly in the 88-89 mph range but it tends to be pretty straight and Whitley has to work hard to keep it down in the strike zone. His curveball is slower than ideal at 66-67 mph but its sharp, hard downer break easily makes up for that, especially in the hitter’s mind. It’s a good pitch that he uses effectively. Whitley’s arm quickness is that of a low 90’s pitcher and there’s nothing mechanical that’s going to keep him from reaching that level. Whitley is a good student who will be very, very heavily recruited on the East Coast.

Rob Whitley is a 5'11" right handed pitcher from Danville, Virginia, in the 2006 class, and one of the top prospects at the Southeast Underclass Showcase. He has a mature build for his age with good strength in his hips and thighs. We’d seen Whitley about two months earlier in Florida and seen him throw 83-85 mph. At Duke he was 86-89 mph with good running action. It’s always nice to see young pitchers take this kind of step forward. Whitley uses his lower body strength well in his delivery and throws from a mid ¾ release point with a long, whippy arm action. Whitley also throws a 67-71 mph knuckle curveball that had inconsistent spin and release point, but flashed good break at times and a 71 mph change up. Whitley impresses us as a bulldog type of pitcher with an aggressive attitude on the mound.

Rob Whitley is a 2006 right handed pitcher from Danville, VA, with some good present day stuff. He’s long in back with some wrap and will occasionally get ahead of his arm and leave pitches up, but Whitley’s arm shows very good quickness and projectability. Whitley’s fastball was in the 84-85 mph range for three innings and had excellent life at times. He threw some cut fastballs that were particularly sharp and had some run and sink on other fastballs. Whitley’s curveball is a knuckle curveball that’s 65-68 mph and can be tight at times. He didn’t show a change up. Whitley’s mechanics are a bit on the raw side but his stuff is very good and he’s physically projectable. Keep an eye on him. He can pitch at a high level. Rob is a good student.
