Scouting the 2017 Draft: Alex Scherff

Alex Scherff, RHP, HS, Texas.  6'4", 205 lbs.  PG's bio page lists him at 6'4", but he's listed 6'2"- 6'5" depending on what showcase even is covered.  Everybody seems to agree he has a sinking FB that sits 93-95 MPH and gets up to 96.  He backs that up with a plus changeup that is repeatedly referred to as the best in the draft.  The breaking ball is a slurve with some bite that probably needs refinement and could become a true slider.

What stands out in the video I saw is the easy 3/4 motion and how the ball jumps out of his hand with seemingly little effort.  I would guesstimate that he is a pick 10-15 draft prospect right now with potential to go higher.  He is an excellent student committed to Texas A&M.  I would say he is singable if he goes anywhere in the first round.
