John Essig is a 2012 RHP/3B with a 6-2 190 lb. frame from Homer, IL who attends Heritage. Lanky, athletic build with lots of projection. Throws from 3/4 slot with lots of moving parts and deception in his delivery. Long arm action with good arm speed. Fastball sat low 80s, topping at 84. Had feel for curveball at 71 with 11/5 break and also showed changeup at 73. Very wide base at the plate. Easy swing with loft. Long swing with pull pop and more to come with strength. Excellent student.
