2013 Draft-Notes – Kyle Montell, Jeff Thompson, SCBL-WS,

Kyle Montell, RHP, Pickerington North HS, Class of 2013  - 6-foot-2, 184-pound right-handed pitcher. Looks the part. Uses quick arm action through a high ¾ arm slot. Delivery requires some effort. Fastball sits 83-87 mph. Curveball sits 68-70 mph with gradual 12/6 break. Shows good depth to it. Also uses a 79-80 mph cutter with good downward bite. Changeup sits 72-75 mph. Tends to slow down arm action, but shows good arm side run. PBR 

On a misty night at Doran Park, Jeff Thompson (Louisville) overpowered the Harwich Mariners, pitching a six inning no-hitter, as the Braves won, 9-0. “I got my change-up going…it was working for me really well today,” Thompson said, “Austin [Wynns] caught a great game and I was able to execute.” In addition to keeping Harwich hitless, Thompson fanned the first four batters of the night and finished with nine strike outs in total. http://bournebraves.org/baseball/thompson-no-hits-harwich/
