PG Grade: 10
Brandon Platts is a 2011 RHP/ with a 6-4 210 lb. frame from Mason City, IA who attends Mason City. Tall well proportioned build. Looked a bit rusty coming back from a minor injury but is now healthy and possesses impressive stuff. Curveball featured good spin and 11-7 downer break, nice shape. Mixed in a good mid 80s changeup with good arm speed and nice sink. Slow paced delivery with good body control, gets downhill. Has shown good feel for all three pitches in the past, command wasn't as good as we've seen in the past but velocity was good and changeup was best we've seen it. Very solid prospect, good student, committed to Missouri.
