A physical righthander out of Ohio, Anglin showed big-time raw stuff over the summer, headlined by a fastball that sat in the low 90s with heavy arm-side run and got into the mid-90s at its best. Additionally, Anglin broke out a breaking ball that projected as an average pitch in the 73-80 mph range and flashed two-plane break with good depth, but at times he struggled to stay on top of the pitch. He also showcased a low-80s changeup that had potential. This spring, scouts haven’t seen the same top-end stuff out of Anglin and also wonder about his chances to start in the future, as he throws from a low three-quarter slot, has a long arm action with an inconsistent release point and has shown below-average control. Anglin is expected to be a tough sign out of Clemson, and given his spring and the fact that he’s older for the class, it might be tough for teams to buy him out in a signable range this June. But if he performs in the ACC, he has the raw stuff and the frame to shoot up draft boards in a few years with more refinement.
