Max Fried is a 2012 LHP/1B with a 6-4 165 lb. frame from Encino, CA who attends Montclair Prep. Profile pitchers build, still plenty of room to get stronger. Slow paced leg lift delivery, smooth mechanics, high 3/4's arm slot, fast and loose arm. Fastball to 92 mph, late hard sinking action at times. Hard curveball spin, sharp downer bite, potential plus pitch, not consistent yet on curveball release, still developing confidence in change up. Pitches to the bottom of the strike zone with intent. Was 84-87 mph last year, still hasn't reached physical ceiling. Very quick and athletic off the mound, 6.87 runner. Sound hitting mechanics, good looking swing, squares the ball up well, has hitting tools with more strength. Good student, verbal commitment to UCLA. Named to the Perfect Game All American Classic team.
