Zack Cox is a 2008 RHP/3B with a 6'0'', 205 lb. frame from Louisville, KY who attends Pleasure Ridge Park HS. He has a mature frame with good strength throughout. Cox has been a high profile pitching prospect for some time but we might be at the point right now where we think he's a better third base prospect. Certainly pro scouts looking at him as a 6-0 right hander are more likely to see his third base power potential right now than his high velocity fastball. On the mound, Cox has a medium effort delivery with a high leg kick and a head jerk at release. His fastball is steady in the 90-93 mph range and has heavy sinking action at the plate. Cox throws a hard sweeping slider in the upper 70's that has good tilt to it. His stuff doesn't project much but is plenty good as it is. As Cox has got stronger over the past 2 years, his bat has really come on. He has very good bat speed and a short, powerful stroke that consistently squares up on the ball. He's more of a line drive, gap to gap hitter now but projects plenty of power. Cox is surprisingly athletic at third base and is a top level defensive player. He's one of the top two-way prospects in the country and has more polished tools than most other 2-way types.
