Sogard is an "05" LHP/!B from Phoenix. At 6'1/190 he is a solidly built, athletic looking player. He shows very nice hands and good feet around 1B. He has excellent arm strength and throwing ability. Offensively, he hits with an early load from a wide base. He squares to the ball very well with a line drive swing plane. He is a gap to gap, line drive hitter with some down the road power potential. On the mound he has extremely good mechanics with a good downward plane to his pitches and a good feel for the mound. He threw from a 3/4 arm slot, in the low 80s at this event. He's going to throw harder and probably does already. Nice biting breaking ball in the low 70s and a very good feel for the changeup. Good command and mound presence. He can pitch and should end up being a top level college lefty. In fact, if he tacks on some added velocity he might develop into a nice draft pick over the next 2 years.
