LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2011 National Showcase  
Nathan Kirby is a 2012 LHP with a 6-2 185 lb. frame from Midlothian, VA who attends James River HS. Lean athletic build, room to get stronger, good projection. Fast paced delivery with some effort, long loose extended arm action, extended 3/4's release, very fast arm coming through, falls off on release affecting command. 88-91 mph fastball, sat at 91 mph early, big running life on fastball, gets on hitters quickly. Outstanding hard spin and bite on curveball, big hard break at times, slider velocity but knucklecurve grip, can be nasty when everything is right. Rare change up. Movement on fastball and size of curveball are hard to command. Very difficult to hit when in the zone. High level arm. Good student, verbal commitment to Virginia.
