Scouting Report: Kohl Stewart
Pitcher name: Kohl Stewart
Hometown: Tomball, TX
Draft status: HS Senior at St. Pius X
Physical: Stewart as rounded shoulders and long a body. He has long limbs and an athletic build. He has a frame that has plenty of room to mature and develop.
Mechanics: Stewart has a very smooth and clean delivery. He has a medium leg kick and hands break at the chest. He throws from low ¾ arm slot and a clean arm action. He does not use his legs to their full potential.
Fastball: Stewart has one of the strongest arms in the HS Class. His fastball sits around 93 to 95 and tops out at 97 with some sinking and tailing action. His fastball at times does flatness out but it is it has good movement when everything is in sync. I can see his fastball being a plus pitch at the professional level.
Secondary Pitches: Stewart throws a slider with a sharp break and is clocked between 87 to 88mph. He does hang it at times but it doesn’t have a tight rotation. He has a good feel for the pitch though, but needs time to develop it.
He also throws a Change up and it normally sits around 81 to 83 with sinking action. I could develop into a solid pitch to above average pitch.
Summary: I had the chance to see Stewart at both Area Code Game and PG at Petco. He is a 2 sport athlete and is a very good QB from what I hear, but could have a very good future on the mound if he choices. If he choices to focus on baseball, he could becoming an elite pitcher with his tools. He has the chance to have 2 plus pitches (Fastball and Slider) and one above average pitch. That would translate into a front of the rotation pitcher.
