08/03/2009 - College PREP - Trenton, NJ Jason is a young LHP with a tall, strong looking frame that shows projection as he continues to mature and firm up. Mechanics are sound with loose actions and a compact, repeatable delivery. He falls off to the 3B side and needs to work to finish more squarely creating extension with his release point. He can get more explosion out of his lower half. Arm slot is high ' and he maintains arm speed on all his pitches. Arm strength is slightly above average and he must get on a strict long toss program to aid in further developing arm strength, raising velocities. Fastball shows a range of 78-80 mph and shows some arm side run and is heavy. Changeup is best off speed pitch showing a solid feel with arm side run. Breaking ball displays a 1/7 shape with loose spin and gradual break. He attacks hitters as he throws strikes with all his pitches. With 2 years to further develop, Midkiff has potential, especially if more arm strength is developed. Also showed a solid approach at the plate with plus bat speed and a good inside path with strength. He can improve his approach and power by staying through the baseball and transferring his weight more efficiently.
