Clayton VanderLaan is a 2008 RHP with a 6'0'', 190 lb. frame from Houston, TX who attends Cypress Ridge. Clayton uses a low 3/4 release and his delivery bring to mind Dennis Eckersley. His fastball was in the high 80's this outing with occasional hard run and consistent sink. He has a loose arm that projects more. His change was good and had good velocity difference from his fastball. Hitters could not get good looks off him with his deceptive delivery. He has signed with Michigan St.
