When we, and we suspect everyone else, sees Lalor, our first thought is “Is this the day that Lalor’s going to break out and throw really hard?” It appears to be only a matter of time before Lalor jumps from the mid to high 80’s to potentially the mid-90’s. Lalor is extra long and lean and his 6-6, 198 listed size doesn’t do justice to his physique. He has a long, loose, whippy arm action with extra extension both back and front. In fact, it might not hurt him to compact his arm swing in the back a bit. In Lincoln, Lalor threw 84-86 mph with good sink and stayed low in the zone consistently. His curveball had good velocity at 73 mph and had tight spin on it when he stayed on top. Lalor’s 79 mph change had some quality to it, also. Lalor’s older brother was throwing in the 92-93 mph range as a high school senior last year before suffering some arm problems, so we know the genetics are there, too. John has always impressed us as a pitcher first, thrower second type. He can really pitch! Stay tuned for the progress reports, it's our opinion that young Lalor is going to make a significant jump before long. John is a good student.
