PG Grade: 10
Kevin Abel is a 2017 RHP with a 6-2 175 lb. frame from San Diego, CA who attends Madison HS. Slender young build, lots of room to fill out and get stronger. High 3/4's slot, some spine tilt with his arm coming through, arm is fast and loose coming through, hides the ball well, tries to work downhill but could get more consistent with it. Fastball topped out at 91 mph, more velocity there with additional strength, fastball is currently a secondary pitch for him. Change up is essentially a screwball with big fading life and very good arm speed at release. Curveball has hard biting action and big depth when he's on top of it. Also threw some interesting cutters with some bite. Has the full arsenal of pitches and projects. Next step in his development will be improved fastball command. Very good student, verbal commitment to Oregon State.
