03/24/2013 - College PREP - Bowie, MD Connor is a 2-way guy as a RHP/1B who has a tall and lanky (pitcher's) build. On the mound, this RHP has a 3-pitch mix including a FB, SL and Fork ball. He keeps his eyes on the target, gets to a controlled balance point, and maintains level shoulders. FB shows some arm-side run and SL has sweeping action. He pounds the zone with all of his pitches and finishes in square fielding position. More arm strength and lower 1/2 drive will increase FB velocity. At the plate, Connor shows an athletic and crouched stance and good balance. He gets to a loaded position and fires his lower 1/2, helping to create pop off of the barrel. Creating extension through contact will help to increase power at the plate. Defensively at 1B, Patswald has decent footwork and moves around the ground ball. He makes the plays and is a big target. As a 2014 graduate, Connor still had time to improve on his game.
