Scouting the 2017 Draft: Hans Crouse

Hans Crouse is a lanky RHP from Dana Point, CA.  PG did not have much of a scouting report, but he's hit 95-97 MPH consistently in tournaments.  At 6'4", 185 lbs with a thin frame, he will probably always be on the thin side, but his frame looks like it can handle 20-30 more pounds fairly easily.  There is some effort in his delivery with a late acceleration and a somewhat abrupt deceleration.  There was one pitch on one video where he dropped down and came in sidearm.  He has performed well in competition allowing just 1 hit with 11 K's in 7 IP against Cuba in the championship game of the 18U Pan American Baseball Classic.  He is committed to USC.
