Josh Means is a 2007 RHP with a 6'3'', 185 lb. frame from Kennesaw GA, who attends Kennesaw Mountain HS. He has a tall athletic body and solid present strength. We've seen Means for many years, since we was a primary outfielder just starting to pitch, and this was some of the best raw stuff we've seen him with. Means throws from a balanced, calm delivery with a loose arm and a low to mid 3/4's release point. He repeats his delivery very well and has a very consistent release point out front. Means best pitch is his sinker, which at times has nasty plus, plus life to it. When you throw it 88-90 mph like Means did this outing and spot it inside and out, it's a very difficult pitch to hit with any authority. Mean's compliments his sinker with a big breaking 77 mph slider that has sharpness and that he spots very well. Means did not throw throw a change up and rarely does, which would be a nice weapon to add to his sinker/slider combination. Means has polished approach to pitching and works in and out well and when he keeps the ball down, he's going to win at just about any level with his present two pitches. He is a good student.
