Travis Lawler is a 2007 right hand pitcher from A&M Consolidated HS, residing in Little Rock, AR. He has an excellent build for a young pitching prospect, with a long, lean build on his a 6'3" 170 lb. frame. Though it is an overused term, his body is projectable, as his arm action. Lawler was ranked #31 among PG National Top 85 pitchers and has a chance to move well beyond many of the more physically mature hard throwers that were at that showcase. He pitches from a 3/4 slot and has a long, loose, and clean arm action that works with easy effort. His arm speed is very good and he has excellent rhythm in his delivery, which stays on line toward the plate. As his body gains strength and power, he will throw harder and should not have to use a whole lot more effort to do so. That is the beauty of young prospects with his body type, arm strength, and arm speed. His fastball topped at 91 and he pitched in the upper-80s. Lawler will show plus sink at times. With those physical strength gains he will get even more extension, leading to more life on his pitches. His breaking ball was a slurvy 78 mph slider with roundhouse type action. Again, when he can get more extension, that pitch will gain more bite and loose a little of the lateral shape, likely gaining more depth and tilt. Lawler has an above average change-up, thrown at 78-81 mph and thrown with good arm speed. He likes throwing the change and his slot really works for that pitch. His father Jim Lawler is the head coach at Arkansas-Little Rock, and is formerly the longtime pitching coach at Texas A&M. It is conceivable that we could hear reports in the late spring of Lawler making a big jump in velocity and rising up draft lists. He is also a top D1 prospect and will have plenty of opportunities to select where he wants to go to school.
PG Grade 10.0
