Seminaris stood front and center in Long Beach State’s rebirth this spring. After showing well in the Cape Cod League last summer, he began the year with six scoreless innings and 11 strikeouts against Cal in the season opener. Two weeks later, with dozens of high-level evaluators in attendance, he pitched eight scoreless innings with one hit allowed, two walks and 10 strikeouts against Mississippi State. Seminaris dominates with a feel to pitch so elite that one evaluator compared it to Tom Glavine's. He starts his four-pitch mix with an easy 88-92 mph fastball that plays up with deception from his crossfire delivery. He has two distinct breaking balls: a high-arcing curveball he can land for strikes or expand the zone with and a short slurve with late action that stays off of barrels. Seminaris’ out pitch is his changeup, a plus offering that dives in front of the plate to draw swings and misses and weak contact. Seminaris expertly mixes his four pitches, reads hitters and exploits their weaknesses, often giving the impression he’s toying with them. He is durable, efficient and lasts deep into his starts. Seminaris’ lack of big velocity or a plus breaking ball keeps him out of the top tier of the draft class, but his easy low-90s fastball and plus changeup from the left side have evaluators confident he’s a big leaguer.
