Kyle Blair is a 2007 right hand pitcher from Los Gatos HS, residing in Monte Serrano, CA. He has a strong, powerful, durable body type on a 6'3" 200 lb. frame that still has room to fill out. Blair has long been regarded as one of the top prospects in the '07 class and earned a #15 ranking among PG National Top 85 pitchers. His signature pitch has been his power curveball and at PG National that was no different. He is now working on developing more fastball command and adding a third pitch, a change-up. Blair pitches from an over the top slot and gets plus extension on the front side. On the back side he has a long, deep extension type arm stroke that creates good leverage. His arm is quick and strong. His delivery is generally on time though he can get caught up in overthrowing the fastball at times. Blair's fastball topped at 92 and sat in the 88-91 range. When his delivery is on time Blair's fastball can be heavy and good down in the zone, particularly on the arm side. In some ways, his plus curveball has limited his development of better fastball usability. Blair can go to his 77-80 mph curveball at anytime, in any count. He can use it for outs or strikes. His curveball has power tilt and plus bite. It is a hammer and even better, he throws strikes with it. Hitters generally swing and miss at it or they gey locked up and can't swing. He did not throw many change-ups, but Blair is developing some feel for that pitch. Likely a pitcher only after high school, Blair can swing the bat and has good power to all fields. He makes hard barrel contact and has strong hands. He ran 7.25 in the 60. Blair committed to Univ. of San Diego but will likely have to make a decision in the spring, sign or go to school. Expect him to ratchet up his stuff into the 91-94 range this spring with that big time breaking ball, which will put his name in consideration for the top few rounds.
