This athletic (6'1"/190) RHP pounds the zone with an effective 3-pitch mix. Arm works quick and clean as he drives downhill, in-line toward the plate. FB cracks the mitt at 89 mph as he throws it for strikes consistently. Curveball has 10/4 shape with good action while changeup shows some sink. He mixes his pitches well and does a good job of keeping hitters off balance. Luke is a skilled RHP who will toe the rubber and compete at a high level.

Luke is an exciting young prospect with an extremely high ceiling as a RHP. He is athletic on the mound with a coordinated delivery - collecting at the top with a slight inward turn, and accelerating through release into a good finish. He has big arm strength, topping out at 92 mph (and showing 98 mph raw veto into a net) with good plane to his fastball. He pounds the strike zone and goes at hitters with a refreshing aggressive approach. After getting ahead with fastballs Luke rolled out a power slider that lived in the low 80s and showed late 2-plane break that missed bats. Luke also showed his athleticism with good feet and hands at 3B and a feel for the position. He employs a lift-and-separate approach at the plate that leads to some leverage power to the pull side. Overall, this an arm to watch very closely over the next few years.
