Colton Highlander is a 2007 RHP with a 6'6'', 190 lb. frame from Augusta, KY who attends New Richmond. He has a very tall and slender build with long arms and legs. Highlander throws from a cross body low 3/4's release point with a long, slinging arm action. He needs to work on his balance and rhythm, which throw off his command and feel for his pitches. Highlander's fastball was 85-86 mph with plenty of running action. He threw a 75 mph slurve type breaking ball with a big, sweeping break. Highlander has prospect level arm strength and ability but needs some work on his mechanics and delivery to take the next step.
