Spencer is an exciting 2-way prospect (LHP/1B) with an extremely projectable frame. He stands at 6'7"/195 pounds and gets great downhill plane to all of his offerings on the mound. His fastball sat 88-89 mph during his dominant outing in which he struck out 4 of the 5 hitters he faced. He did most of his damage with the fastball, as it has late life and hitters did not seem to pick it up well out of the hand. Spencer has a clean arm with some effort to the release after a mechanically sound delivery. He also throws a curve that flashed late break and a change that he only needed to throw warming up on this night. He mixed in a 2-seamer at 85 mph, as well, that had good arm-side run. Spencer also impressed as a position player with a coordinated LH stroke that produced line drives to all fields in batting practice. He is most comfortable using the middle of the field, though he does have some pull side power (97 mph exit velocity) that will continue to emerge. Athletic (6.82 in the 60) and a good target at 1B, he is an advanced defender as well. With the ability to impact games in a variety of ways, Spencer is a unique prospect with a very high ceiling.
