LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2016 National Showcase  
Tanner Burns is a 2017 RHP/SS with a 6-0 205 lb. frame from Decatur, AL who attends Decatur HS. Very strong well developed build, especially in the lower half. Simple turn and throw delivery, low effort mechanics, full loose arm action, high 3/4's arm slot, creates angle despite height. Fastball up to 95 mph, ball comes out of his hand easily, showed the ability to work both corners and keep the ball down in the zone with his fastball. Comes over his breaking ball as a curveball despite hard slider velocity, showed nasty bite when he was on top of it, has a feel for spinning the ball. Developing change up. Works quickly and fills up the strike zone and has an idea what he's doing for a young pitcher. Father is the head coach at Calhoun State JC. Reminds strongly of 2012 PG All-American Grant Holmes. Good student, verbal commitment to Auburn. Selected for the Perfect Game All-American Classic.
