10/09/2016 - College PREP - Austin, TX Noel is a tall, broad 2017 LHP prospect with exciting tools and potential. He already features three plus pitches, all with late, hard movement. He has a live arm with a free and clean stroke that allows him to get late action on his pitches. His fastball sits in the mid 80's with late run, his curveball is a 2-8 breaker with late, downward break and his changeup has sinking action from the same arm speed as his fastball. This southpaw is smooth on the mound, working with good tempo to keep hitters off balance and uses his long frame to create lots of spin and rotation as he releases the ball. Working on hiding the ball will increase deception and allow his stuff to play up even more in games. At the dish, this prospect has a middle approach with the ability to drive the ball to the left and right center field gaps. He has a short path to the ball and gets good extension through contact with a high finish. Noel is an exciting prospect who we expect to see playing at the next level after he graduates.
