06/09/2018 - 2018 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's National Texas
Blake is a prospect on the mound. On the bump, he attacks hitters, throwing a lot of strikes as he works to get ahead of hitters through a quick tempo. Fastball showed a range of 86-90 mph with tailing action. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with late break. Off speed stuff show as quality pitches that will get outs at the next level. Control is outstanding as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Blake will get looks from pro scouts with the makings of a 2019 draft pick.
11/04/2017 - 2017 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's Futures Texas
Blake was very impressive at the Baseball Factory UA Futures Texas event. He started the game on the mound and threw the ball very well. His delivery is balanced, athletic and coordinated, and his arm stroke is long and fluid. He sat mainly in the mid-80s with very little effort, and the ball jumps out of his hand making the velocity play up against hitters. In addition to his FB being sneaky fast, Blake gets excellent run on it, having it bore in to right-handed hitters. Blake complemented that pitch with a mid-70s slider that had good 3/4 tilt and induced a few swinging strikes. The pieces are in place for a very high-level arm here. Blake merits close following over the next few years.
