Patrick King is a 2005 left handed pitcher from Columbus New Jersey with a tall projectable pitchers body, and long arms and legs at 6 ft. 5 190 pounds. He pitches from a 3/4 slot with a drop in drives style, and a hip turn. He loses a lot of his natural 6 ft. 5 leverage. He extends well out front, and lands on his heel. He is a very raw mechanically and slightly off balance. His fastball topped out at 81 mph with good run. His change was 69-71 mph with good movement. He did not show a breaking ball. He has a very projectable LHP body with a loose arm that has more velocity in it. Patrick is an excellent student and a pitching coaches dream. His best years are ahead of him..

King is a 2005 LHP from Columbus, NJ with a tall, lanky 6'5"/185 pound frame. He showed a long 3/4 arm action with a big, deceptive motion. His arm is long and loose and works well. His fastball was 79 mph with good tail, especially on the outside pitch. He showed some good power at the plate as a pull-hitter, but projects as a pitcher at the next level. He needs to be followed. Patrick is an excellent student.

Patrick King is a 6'5" left handed pitcher from Columbus, NJ, who has an excellent pitcher’s body, from the Class of 2005. He’s long and lean and has loose actions. King starts his deliberate windup tall and balanced, but ends up as a severe drop and drive thrower whose release point is more like a 5'10" pitcher’s than a 6'5" pitcher. King’s fastball was in the 79-81 mph range and he threw a pretty good change up, but did not show a breaking pitch. We have to believe that a 6'5" southpaw with a loose arm and good overall athleticism would generate much more velocity pitching from a more leveraged and tall delivery. It would be interesting to know whether King’s delivery is due to natural preference or specific coaching. He's very interesting and could be a big sleeper. Patrick is an excellent student.

King is a young "05" LHP/1B who projects nicely. At a tall lanky 6'5/185 (though he doesn't look quite that tall) he draws immediate attention and projects off the charts. He showed some hitting ability but his future is most certainly on the hill. He threw lower 80s in Wareham with good mechanics and nice arm action. His off speed pitches could use some work, but they're effective. He threw a frisbee type breaking ball 55-62 mph. It's a strange pitch and might just work at the highest levels. We would rather see him use that nice arm to throw a real hammer in the low 70s. He showed a good feel for the change up. One thing that King needs to do is pitch at a quicker pace. He spent a lot of time walking around the mound in between pitches. Of course, these are things pitching coaches will straighten out in the future and this kid has a bright future. He is a very good student as well.
