Javan Smitherman is a 2018 RHP/SS with a 5-9 150 lb. frame from Kilgore, TX who attends Sabine HS.Young, athletic frame with a lean, projectable build and room to fill out with additional depth. Ran a 7.36 60-yard dash. Primary right-handed pitcher, throws from a three-quarter arm with a compact arm action and a rotational delivery. Effort release but has a tight, compact release and hides the ball very well. Up tempo delivery and works quickly on the mound. High level of pitchability for age, shows command and feel for three pitches. Fastball topped out at 83 mph, true life but occasionally gets big run to arm side. Filled up zone with curveball, slurve shape with big command and 10-4 shape at 70 mph. Changes velocity on changeup with intent, fade on pitch at 74 mph. Fields the ball out front in the infield, shows strength and quick hands from a lower arm slot. Short a short, line drive swing from the right side using a leg lift trigger. Good bat speed with an up the middle approach and shows nice strength in swing. Very good student. Named to National Underclass South Top Prospect List.
