Solomon Bates is a 2015 RHP with a 6-2 190 lb. frame from Victorville, CA who attends Junipero Serra HS. Broad shouldered athletic build. Well paced side step delivery, calm and repeatable delivery, low effort release from a long, loose arm action, 3/4's arm slot. Upper 80's fastball, topped out at 90 mph, mostly straight, works down and to both sides of the plate with his fastball. Consistent curveball spin and shape, will wrap curveball at times in back and tip the pitch. Shows some feel for his change up with some sink and fade. Fills up the zone with three pitches, plus command potential, lacks a present swing/miss pitch but has the time and mechanics to develop one. Good student, verbal commitment to Southern California.
