There must be something in DeLucia’s blood that craves the big moments. The righthander first put his name on the national scouting scene as a rising junior, when he helped an underclass Canes Prospects team win a WWBA World Championship in 2017. Five years later, DeLucia once again pushed a team to a championship—this spring it just happened to be with Mississippi in Omaha. DeLucia was named the College World Series Most Outstanding Player after throwing a nine-inning, four-hit shutout against Arkansas to push the Rebels to the CWS. DeLucia pitched two seasons with Northwest Florida JC before transferring to Mississippi. He started the spring in the bullpen but eventually worked his way into the rotation and in total posted a 3.68 ERA over 95.1 innings with 105 strikeouts (25.9 K%) and 26 walks (6.4 BB%). A stocky, 6-foot-1, 205-pound pitcher, DeLucia primarily works off a fastball/slider combo. His fastball sits in the low 90s and touches 94-95, with good running life and carry, as well as a flat vertical approach angle. He throws a high-spin slider in the low 80s and it flashes hard and sharp turn at its best and was the most consistent swing-and-miss offering for DeLucia this spring. His mid-80s changeup was used less than 10% of the time this spring and is primarily an off-speed offering for lefthanded hitters, with fade and arm side run, but he needs to improve his control of the pitch.
