Colby Carmichael is a 2014 LHP/OF with a 6-1 180 lb. frame from Des Moines, IA who attends Des Moines East HS. Nice athletic frame, lots of room to get stronger. Tall delivery, simple turn/throw mechanics with pause over the rubber, over the top release point, pulls head 1-2 feet off line on release. Loose quick arm action, fastball to 81 mph, mostly straight, nice arm speed on change up with some arm side fade, short curveball with some bite and shape. Projectable arm/stuff but may need arm angle adjustment to eliminate severe head pull. Left handed hitter, low hand set to start, uppercut swing plane, gets ball in the air, will go with the pitch, best contact left centerfield. Shows athleticism to the ball in the outfield, good hands, improved footwork will unleash OF arm strength. Good student.
