Focus Area
Comments
Fastball:Spruill threw his fastball in the 90-94 mph range.
Fastball movement:It's nothing electric, but he does have average movement.
Slider:He flashes an average slider, which he throws 76-79 mph.
Changeup:The changeup is below average, a work in progress. He throws it 80-82 mph.
Control:Early in the game, it was average. As the game wore on, his velocity decreased, he rushed his delivery and his command suffered.
Poise:He's almost a little too laid back on the mound.
Physical Description:Spruill is a tall, thin projectable high school right-hander who lacks overall physical strength.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:Projectable frame, two at least average pitches.
Weaknesses:He's got a long arm sweep in his delivery and he does not maintain velocity or command later in games.
Summary:The very definition of a projectable high school right-hander, Spruill has the size and flashes the pitches to be an intriguing prospect. His fastball runs up to 94 mph, though he doesn't always maintain it. He's got a smooth delivery, but a long arm sweep is an issue. There's a lot to work with here, and a team that likes projectable arms won't hesitate to take him.
