Zachary Bird is a 2012 RHP/IF with a 6-4 188 lb. frame from Jackson, MS who attends Murrah HS. Very long limbed, square shouldered build. Full delivery, high compact arm action, high 3/4's release, will occasionally spin off on release, has some deception. 4-Seam fastball steady 86-88 mph, works downhill well, throws cutter at 85, very effective pitch especially from the stretch. Big 70 mph curveball for strikes, threw slider only in warm ups, change up shows potential if thrown more. Around the plate, could have the whole basket of pitches and a feel for using them. Has been up to 91 frequently in the past. Excellent student, signed with Southern Mississippi.
