Craig Theiss is a 2017 RHP/OF with a 6-6 205 lb. frame from DeSoto, MO who attends Desoto HS. Outstanding athletic build, tall and angular with some present strength and more to come. Really impressed in outfield drills with his loose actions and outstanding arm action, threw 90 in drills with little effort and a smooth throwing action, arm works really well from the outfield and adds to his projection. Drifting delivery, loses his height and leverage at present, compact quick arm action, gets downhill at times on his fastball and powers it to the bottom of the zone. Fastball was steady in the mid-80's, lots more there with physical maturity and delivery adjustments. Slider was his best secondary pitch, maintained his arm speed and got some spin and depth. Tended to slow his arm noticeably on his curveball and change up, still work to do on those pitches. Has gained 5 mph since the fall. High ceiling young talent who will be fun to watch develop. Follow very closely. Good student.
