Focus Area
Comments
Fastball:Seaton throws his fastball up to 94 mph.
Fastball movement:He's got pretty good sink with his two-seamer.
Sliders:He's got a good slider that he threw up to 85 mph.
Changeup:He's got one that should be average in the future. Right now, he doesn't use it at the right times, so it's almost counter-productive.
Control:He's got pretty good command, especially for a high schooler, and doesn't hurt himself with walks.
Poise:He's very good on the mound and is a very intelligent kid.
Physical Description:Seaton is a big, athletic and strong right-hander who's also a pretty good hitting prospect.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:Strong and athletic, he's got the chance to have three at least average offerings.
Weaknesses:The changeup is behind the other pitches; a strong commitment to Tulane might make him tough to sign.
Summary:Texas isn't providing the usual supply of fireballing high school arms, but Seaton is trying to represent as best he can. With a good fastball and slider, along with a changeup that should work well in the future, he's fairly polished for a high schooler. A good athlete, he's drawn some interest as a hitter as well and if the position or the bonus isn't right, the bright right-hander could head to Tulane as a two-way player.
