LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2011 National Showcase
Walker Buehler is a 2012 RHP/OF with a 6-2 160 lb. frame from Lexington, KY who attends Henry Clay HS. Slender build. Leg tuck delivery, over the top release point, pulls head off plate but lower half stays directional, repeats well. Very fast, loose arm, steady 90-92 mph fastball, throws it to spots. Nasty upper 70's curveball, plus/plus sharpness and bite, big downer shape, excellent curveball command despite size and shape, got ahead with fastball, closed out with curveball and completely overmatched hitters. Strong comparison to former Pirates #1 draft pick, Bobby Bradley. Outstanding student, verbal commitment to Vanderbilt.
