Latest Showcase Report
2002 PG National Top Prospect Showcase   Jun 14, 2002
PG Grade: 9.5
Downs is the guy you put on the mound when you need to win a big game. This kid can really pitch. We've seen his velocity better in the past, but with him velocity is an after thought. I'm sure he's been hit before, but we have yet to see a hitter have a good AB against him. He is thin and projects out of site with good arm action. He throws all his pitches around the zone. He is going to throw 90 or better.
