Samuel Kornstad is a 2015 LHP with a 6-3 190 lb. frame from Urbandale, IA who attends ADM HS. Big long limbed build, plenty of room to get stronger. Low hand delivery, full arm circle in back, back side stays on rubber with very little drive to the plate, upper half thrower, extended 3/4's arm slot. Fastball topped at 83 mph, looked like he was working 2-seam/4-seam with occasional nice running action in the upper 70's. Slider was his out pitch, gets good depth and some biting action, curveball was slower version of the slider, rare change up still developing. Worked quickly, mixed his pitches well and was effective. Might see a velocity spike with more back side use and drive. Shows some potential with the bat, has some looseness and strength to his swing, solid line drive contact from a spread/no stride stance. Good student.
