LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2006 Southeast Top Prospect Showcase  
Evan Bates is a 2007 LHP/1B with a 6'3'', 200 lb. frame from Tuscaloosa AL, who attends Northridge HS. He has a large frame with some natural strength but could get much stronger. Bates has a complex, slow paced delivery, with a high leg kick out front and some back side collapse on his rear leg. He has a very long, extended arm action and shows the ball in back. All this comes through with a low 3/4's release point. Bates is one of these left handers who throws nothing straight. His fastball was only 74-77 mph but it was running and sinking consistently. His 68 mph curveball was a good pitch, with tight, hard rotation and a big break. Bates moved the ball around and kept hitters guessing. A change up would have been a nice addition and it would have probably had very good movement as well.
