Nice play by Texas second baseman Brett Brown (Godley) to stick with this tough hop.
Texas RHP Adam Kloffenstein (Magnolia) is showing swing and miss stuff. 90-92, touching 93. Good bite on his slider.
This 79-80 mph breaking ball from Brandon Birdsell (Conroe) really falls off the table. Pairs it with 91-94 mph heat
Brandon Birdsell (Conroe), a Texas A&M commit, has some life on his fastball. Up to 94. Comfortably 90-92.
TJ Rumfield (Temple, Baylor commit) has really been hitting the ball with authority.
Adam Kloffensten, RHP, Magnolia
A powerfully built 6-foot-5 righthander, Kloffenstein showed a strong degree of polish in his Tuesday night outing. He worked primarily at 90-93 mph with his fastball, was able to put it on either corner of the plate and used a legitimate three pitch mix to change speeds and put hitters away. His tight 10-4 curveball flashed slider tilt at times at 79-82 mph and showed good, bat missing type of depth. His 84 mph changeup also showed good arm speed and feel. (D1 Baseball)
Brandon Birdsell, RHP, Conroe
The 6-foot-3 righthander had a lot going for him on late Tuesday night, the best of which was that hitters seemed to have a very difficult time picking up his fastball. He changed eye levels with intent and worked at 91-94 mph with his fastball in his first inning. He was not quite as sharp in his second inning, pitching at 91-93 and not locating quite as sharply as he had been. Nonetheless, he still showed an impressive knack for missing bats with elevated fastballs and hitters clearly had issues seeing the ball coming out of his shorter arm action. His 77-79 mph curveball also showed big 11-5 depth and looks like a quality offering in the making for him. (D1 Baseball)
