07/04/2018 - Under Armour Firecracker Classic 18U, powered by Baseball Factory's Team One Cole continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and is a prospect on the diamond. On the mound, delivery is sound / repeatable allowing his arm action to work free to the plate. He shows good tempo through a strong balance point and creates deception. Arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date at 87 mph. Fastball showed a range of 82-87 mph with sinking action. Breaking ball displays 1/7 shape with gradual break and shows a good feel for pitch. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with sinking action. Off speed stuff show as quality pitches that will get outs. Control is a plus as he attacks hitters and throws strikes with all his pitches. At the event, he had 2 great outings and made good adjustments. He shows good mound demeanor and maintains composure. Cole has a tremendous upside on the bump and will get looks from the collegiate coaches with his abilities.
