PG Grade: 7
Pierce is a junior left handed pitcher from Pennsylvania with a slender, athletic 5-10 frame. He threw 4 shutout innings in Fort Myers, striking out 8 hitters while allowing only 1 hit. Pierce is anything but overpowering, pitching in the 71-74 mph range with very good sinking and tailing action on his fastball, but he has well above average pitchability and command. He has two quality off speed pitches, a 67 mph slider and a 67-69 mph change up. While Pierce doesn’t have much velocity differential between his fastball and change up, it’s an effective pitch because Pierce is further changing the hitter’s bat speed at a velocity that many hitters are already uncomfortable hitting against. As long as Pierce is able to make his pitches move and spot them where he wants to, he’s going to have success against most hitters. He’s a pretty good overall athlete and it wouldn’t be surprising to see him add some velocity as he physically matures. Pierce is also an excellent student with a 4.0+ grade point average.
