Tommy Cheek is a 2009 SS/P with a 5'11'', 172 lb. frame from Escondido, CA who attends Cathedral Catholic HS. He has a strong, compact athletic build and is well built for baseball. Cheek's brightest future appears to be on the mound though he should continue to be followed as a position player too. He has a quick arm that works from an over the top slot and has a short backside arm stroke. His delivery has rhythm and he can repeat it. Cheek's fastball registered 83-85 mph and should climb into the mid-upper-80s soon. His best pitch is a tight breaking ball that has hard break. It is potentially a plus pitch. Cheek also showed a nice changeup. Overall he showed feel of three quality pitches and has some presence on the mound. It was actually his first outing on the mound in a long time and he looked he had barely missed a beat. Offensively Cheek is also good. He has some bat speed and made consistent barrel contact. His arm plays in the infield though his range will limit him to 2nd or 3rd base. He has good hands and plays hard. Cheek is an outstanding student and a talented young player who should have no shortage of D1 opportunities.
