Steven Upchurch is a 2008 RHP with a 6'5'', 190 lb. frame from Mobile, AL who attends Faith Academy. Upchurch is a tall projectable RHP who reaches the low 90's and showed the same at the Pre-Draft. He showed good arm speed on a running fastball that sat 88-91. His change was excellent with plus sink and bore. We have seen his breaking stuff better, but this is very understandable since he was pitching with a broken bone in his pitching hand. He showed his toughness and competiveness battling through having a broken hand and has a bright future. He has signed with Auburn.

Steven Upchurch is a 2008 RHP with a 6'4'', 180 lb. frame from Mobile, AL who attends Faith Academy. He has a long, loose athletic build and is very projectable both in his build and in his pitching mechanics. Upchurch has a solid delivery with good balance and throws from a high 3/4 to overhand release point. His arm action is long, loose and quick and gives the impression that there is more velocity in there. Upchurch pitched aggressively with his fastball and was steady in the 90-92 mph range. His fastball was heavy and down in the zone most of the time. He threw a 74 mph curveball that had good spin and feel around the plate and he showed the same type of feel for his change up. With his arm action there isn't much doubt that Upchurch could learn a slider pretty easily, too. Upchurch has a strong idea what he's doing on the mound, competes hard and is going to keep getting better. He's a high ceiling prospect who could really come on between now and the 2008 draft. He is also a good student.

Steven Upchurch is a 2008 RHP/IF that attends Faith Academy and resides in Mobile, AL with a 6'4", 175 lb. frame. Steven has a great pitcher's body with a tall projectable frame. His upside is huge on the mound and he will be a player that could attract draft attention next spring. Steven has a high energy delivery with a loose quick arm action. Steven is a low effort pitcher with great extension out front and could easily see his velocity jump up a lot. All of his pitches are very live and he is able to work the corners well. His change-up is very good out of his hand with nice life and deception. He is able to spin a tight 11 to 5 curveball and a very tight two-plane slider. Steven exudes confidence on the mound and the sky is the limit for his potential. At the plate Steven has good leverage in his swing with nice raw power potential. His swing is a little long and he will improve as he shortens up. Steven is a solid student that will be a highest-level prospect.

Steven Upchurch is a 2008 RHP from Faith Academy in Mobile, Al with a 6'4", 175 lb. frame. Steven has a lean projectable build with room to fill out. He was one of the top prospects at the showcase and could see some draft attention his senior year. On the mound he throws from a full delivery with an easy arm action. Already topping at 88 his velocity looks very projectable and should easily be in the 90's with time. Steven has a great idea of how to change speed and showed off a plus change up and a hard sharp curveball. He seems like his is very athletic on the mound and his potential is very high. At the plate Steven showed some strength and raw power, but will really need to work on his approach. He needs to get his weight back and work on his load if he wants to reach his potential. Steven was very impressive at the showcase and will be a highest level college prospect with some draft attention.
