PG Grade: 8
Luke Yelverton is a 2016 RHP/1B, 3B with a 6-1 198 lb. frame from Demopolis, AL who attends Demopolis. Large frame, thick strong build. Pitches from a high three quarters arm slot with a clean compact arm action. Simple online tall and fall delivery with good downhill plane, uses strong lower half well. Good feel for curveball which flashed hard break in addition to big depth and located a couple on the outside corner for called strikes as well as burying it for swings and misses. Developing changeup, has good life to it, though less feel than his fastball and curveball which he locates well in any count, with more repetitions to improve changeup feel has a chance to throw any of his three pitches in any count to any location, which will make him dangerous. Showed power with the bat as well with a long aggressive swing. Good student. Named to the Southeast Underclass Showcase Top Prospect Team.
