11/21/2010 - College PREP - Germantown, TN
Brett is a two-way player on the mound plus at SS with a broad, strong frame that is well suited for his positions. Currently, he projects best in the IF for the next level. Foot speed is near average as he will benefit by getting on a speed / agility program to improve foot quickness to play in the middle of the IF. Feet are active in coming to get and playing through the baseball with his body as he presents his glove out front, displaying soft, clean hands. He gets rid of the baseball quickly with hands and feet working well together. Instincts are a plus and he communicates well on the field. Throws show carry and accuracy across the diamond but he needs to get on a long toss program to aid in further developing more arm strength. Offensively, Gottlich continues to shine through an aggressive approach. Hands are quick and direct to the baseball as he shows a feel for the barrel with baseball jumping off his bat when centered. He has strength in his swing and will hit with gap to gap power. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 77-79 mph with arm side run. Changeup is best off speed pitch showing feel with arm side run but drops arm slot tipping off pitch. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. Brett has a lot of potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches with his offensive and defensive abilities.
