PG Grade: 8
Russell Forthofer is a 2015 RHP/3B with a 6-3 180 lb. frame from Columbus, GA who attends Columbus. Extra-large, athletic build with long limbs and a lean, projectable frame with room to fill out with added strength. Ran a 7.07 60-yard dash. Primary right-handed pitcher, throws from an over the top arm slot from a steady tempo'd delivery. Stays balanced on back side and uses long limbs to get on top of the ball to work downhill. Stays tall at release and projects well with incorporation of lower half. Worked fastball low in the zone, topping out at 83 mph with occasional run to arm side. Flashed a curveball at 73 mph with 11-5 shape when on top of the pitch. Fields the ball out front in the infield, shows athleticism charging in with ability to make accurate throws from multiple slots. Right-handed hitter, creates nice extension out front in swing with good bat speed coming through the zone. Upper body swing, shows a nice feel for the barrel and shows tools that project with added strength. Good student.
