Austin continues to show steady progress in his baseball abilities. On the mound, delivery is sound / repeatable as he works through a strong balance point. He shows good mound composure and works to pitch ahead in counts. Fastball showed a range of 61-62 mph. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. Getting on a long toss program will help to increase arm strength which will aid in his development on the mound. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable.
