Sam Newton is a 2005 right handed pitcher/outfielder from Joplin, Missouri with a projectable pitchers body at 6 ft. 2 180 pounds. He pitches from a 3/4 slot with a rotational delivery. He has a stiff, sling style arm action. His fastball topped out at 80 mph with good tailing action in Ft Myers. He throws a big sweeping 10-4 curveball that has a nice bite to it. His curveball was his best pitch with a 70-73 mph range. He looks like he has more in him and we've seen him in the upper 80s before. He is much better than what we saw in Ft Myers. Sam is a good student and will be a good pitcher at the next level.

Sam Newton -- Newton is a 6-2 right handed pitcher from Joplin, Missouri with a good looking pro type body. Scouts and coaches know Joplin well as the home of the annual Tournament of Stars Tournament hosted by USA Baseball to select the National Junior Team. Hopefully Newton will get a chance to perform in front of the home fans. His talent will give him a chance, if not his address. Newton has a somewhat cross fire delivery with a quick arm from a mid 3/4’s release point. He throws a fastball in the 84-86 mph range with some tailing action to it. Newton’s out pitch is a 78 mph slider that has a sharp, hard late bite to it and can induce swings from just about any hitter. Sam is a good student and a highest level college prospect right now. Over the next year he could get a lot of pro interest.

Newton is an "05" RHP/OF from Missouri. At 6'2/180 he is very strong and looks athletic. He didn't show a lot of outstanding hitting ability in CR, but this kid could end up being a top level DI or draft pick pitcher. In CR he showed an easy 86 mph fastball out of a smooth 3/4 delivery. He uses his body very well. He threw an extremely promising breaking ball in the "upper 70s". He also showed a decent 76 mph change up. He had good command and looks like a potential big time pitching prospect as he's only a junior. Sam is a good student and needs to be followed closely.
