Armed with one of the best breaking balls of the class, Leiter is the son of former 19-year major leaguer, Al Leiter, and is one of the most polished pitchers in the 2019 class. Standing at just 6 feet and 191 pounds, Leiter pitched in the 89-93 mph range throughout the summer but had a loud outing at the Area Code Games, where he touched 95 mph and sat in the 91-94 mph range for two innings. His go-to pitch is a hammer, 12-to-6 curveball in the 74-78 mph range that has a spin rate between 2,500 and 2,600 rpm. Leiter shows exceptional feel to locate the pitch and lands a low-80s slider with consistency as well. The Vanderbilt commit also throws an 80-84 mph changeup with solid arm speed.
