A slender, 6-foot-3, 170-pound righthander, Heubeck has flashed a loud three-pitch mix and has only improved his game since flashing stuff with inconsistent control last summer. Heubeck has a loose and fast arm and has been up into the mid 90s at his best, though he more typically sits in the 90-93 mph range. His best secondary pitch is a hard, downer curveball in the mid 70s with 12-to-6 shape and impressive depth. He also throws a low-80s changeup that was seen as a distant third pitch last summer but scouts this spring have said Heubeck will flash plus grades with all three of his pitches. What could separate Heubeck from many of the other prep pitchers in the 2021 class is his outstanding natural ability to spin the baseball. He reportedly grades out well in every spin metric, and he has the current pitch-mix to excel with a north-south attack pattern by getting his fastball above barrels at the top of the zone and then burying a hard breaking ball at the bottom. While Heubeck has a fairly easy delivery that doesn’t come with much effort, he has struggled to throw consistent strikes at times. He pitches out of an up-tempo windup, but he’ll need to refine his command to make the most out of his impressive pure stuff. Some scouts think his lean frame offers some physical projection in the future, while others question how much weight he’ll be able to put on even at physical maturity. Heubeck is committed to Wake Forest.
