Sammy Solis is a 2007 left hand pitcher from Aqua Fria HS, residing in Litchfield Park, AZ. Solis has a very lanky and loose build on his 6'5" 225 lb. frame. He is still physically maturing and quite projectable in a physical sense. One of the top left handers in the '07 class, more so in terms of future development, he ranked #55 among PG National Top 85 pitchers. He pitches free and easy from a high 3/4 arm slot with a very loose arm. On the back side his arm makes a short circle and he creates good arm speed. Solis has a decent delivery, that gets better on the front side where he gets his hand to excellent extension. His overall effort level is quite low, another good sign going forward. To make it simple, he mixes his pitches well, has good command, is a quick worker, and can simply pitch. Solis has an easy upper 80s fastball that topped at 91 mph. He showed the willingness to compete inside well with the fastball. His breaking ball is a slurvy mid-70s curveball that has decent spin and shape. As he gains strength and more arm speed, that pitch has a chance to develop into an above average pitch. He already has a plus change-up with a lot of arm side life and the ability to use it effectively. Solis has been a highly recruited prospect by top D1 programs and likely will get some crosschecker attention this spring... there simply are not a lot of lefties in the four corners with his present day stuff and projectability.
