Jonathan Gates is a 2018 LHP/1B with a 6-2 189 lb. frame from Brooksville, FL who attends Nature Coast Technical HS. Large, athletic frame with broad shoulders and very nice physical strength proportioned throughout frame. Primary lefthanded pitcher, advanced feel for mechanics and is able to repeat very well, lots of balance throughout, gets tall on backside and lands on line with front side while generating extension out front. Fuller arm action coming through the back working to a three-quarters arm slot, lives down in the zone with fastball and shows plenty of comfort locating to either side of the plate. Quick arm and able to generate angle along with short running life to arm side on fastball, topped out at 88 mph and more in the tank. Exceptional feel for off speed, throws curveball, slider, and changeup all from same slot and can throw any of the three for strikes. Able to locate slider to back foot of righthanded hitters, curveball shows 1-7 shape with short and tight break at 74 mph while changeup mimics fastball out of the hand. Lefthanded hitter, shifts weight well through lower half while showing a short and quick swing path through the zone. Two-way potential at the next level, generates leverage at the point of contact and creates carry to the pull side with nice present jump off the barrel. Good student. Named to Junior National Top Prospect List. Verbal commitment to Miami.
