A 6-foot-6, 210-pound righthander out of Pennsylvania, Kockanowicz is an intriguing, projectable arm who sat in the 89-92 mph range this summer and mixed in a mid-70s curveball and firm, 86-87 mph changeup as well. Committed to Virginia, Kochanowicz gets great extension off the rubber with a high, three-quarter arm slot and a low finish in his follow through. Kochanowicz mostly throws his pitches for strikes despite his long levers. His curveball shows promise with solid spin and 11-to-5 shape, but it needs to be tightened up and thrown with more conviction in the future as well. Kochanowicz should continue to add velocity as he fills out his lanky frame, but his pitches could play up even without a jump thanks to his height and arm slot.
