University of Texas Fall 2013 Pitcher Scouting Reports

I saw one of the University of Texas' fall baseball games, their Saturday game against Lamar, so this post is a look at the five pitchers that appeared in the game for UT

Josh Sawyer
Sawyer is a 6-2 freshman that still looks thin with the ability to perhaps add a little weight to his frame. The left-handed pitcher was throwing 84-87 MPH on his fastball with the ability to get it glove side. His 74-75 MPH breaking ball had good depth, with some horizontal movement as well. He used the pitch quite often, but he got hit pretty hard overall, even on pitches on the outside of the strike zone.  

Morgan Cooper
 The 6-5 freshman right-hander complemented a 88-90 MPH fastball with a slow 69-73 MPH hook.

Ty Culbreth
 The 6-0 sophomore got some whiffs against lefties with a 86-87 MPH fastball, and had a 77 MPH  breaking ball to go with it.

Justin Peters:
Peters is a 6-4 junior who redshirted last year after spending 2011 with Weatherford College and 2012 with UT. It seemed like he went with all fastballs with his funky release point, throwing 82-86 MPH.

Jon Malmin
The 6-0 freshman should add a little weight and a should throw harder than his current 84-87 MPH fastball that seemed to have cutter or slider movement at times with a 72-73 MPH curve.
