    Leach opened eyes on the national scene with a strong showing at the Rivalry Classic at Fenway Park in the fall, and he showed progress with the Canadian Junior National team in the spring. The top Canadian prospect in the class came up through the Toronto Mets travel program. He hasn't been pitching for very long, but he has a large, durable frame and plus arm speed. Leach's fastball peaked at 93 in the fall, but worked at 90-94 and tickled 95 in the spring. Leach gets heavy sink on his fastball and is tough to square up when he's locating his stuff down in the strike zone. He's a good athlete, has a repeatable delivery and shows flashes with his slurvy breaking ball, giving scouts reason to believe that his best days are still ahead of him. His breaking ball shows natural three-quarter break along the same path of Leach's arm slot and it has occassional power bite to it, with hard-and-late snapping action. Leach's relative inexperience makes him a risky pick, but his quick growth, body and athleticism could entice a team to pounce on him as early as day one.
