Texas Players getting attention from Baseball America

Josh Wolf | RHP | St. Thomas Catholic HS, Houston
Committed: Texas A&M

Wolf was the first pitcher to toe the rubber Thursday morning, and he came out of the gate with a curveball that proved incredibly difficult for Nationals batters to barrel up or even make contact with. The 6-foot-2, 170-pound righty struck out the side and generated eight whiffs in the first inning alone—five of which came against his 75-79 mph curveball.

Wolf also threw a fastball that was in the 90-92 mph range in the first inning before dipping into the 88-90 range during his next two innings. He also threw an 83-85 mph changeup.

Connor Phillips. RHP. Magnolia West
Committed: Louisiana State

Phillips took the mound in relief of Wolf and worked two solid innings with a fastball in the 89-91 mph range, a mid- to upper-70s curveball and a changeup in the upper 70s. The secondaries weren’t the sharpest for Phillips, as he spiked both his breaking ball and his changeup on separate occasions, but there were flashes of solid offerings with each.

Blake Mayfield. RHP. Flower Mound Marcus
Committed: Texas A&M

Mayfield made his second relief appearance of the Area Code Games after Phillips finished his outing, this time pitching two scoreless innings with a pair of strikeouts. Mayfield, a 6-foot-1, 170-pound righthander, also threw a scoreless inning on Monday, and he has now retired all nine batters he’s faced with three strikeouts, three groundouts and three flyouts. Mayfield gets excellent extension on his 90-92 mph fastball, and he has even shown feel for both a curveball and a slider, albeit in very brief looks
