LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2011 National Showcase
Lucas Sims is a 2012 RHP with a 6-2 185 lb. frame from Lawrenceville, GA who attends Brookwood HS. Slender upper half, strong lower half, room to add strength. Big leg raise delivery, high 3/4's release point, some upper body lean, very fast arm coming through. Low 90's fastball, topped at 94 mph, some flat run when down, could work the bottom of the zone more consistently. Curveball best pitch, big size, sharp biting action, same release point as fastball, commands curveball well, buckles some knees. Tends to lower release point on change up, good arm speed and feel, lots of confidence in change and throws plenty of them but it's his 3rd best pitch. Good right handed swing, has some bat speed. Three potential plus pitches and good feel for pitching. Good student, verbal commitment to Clemson. Named to the Perfect Game All American Classic team.
