    Entering the 2022 summer, Eldridge was viewed as a high-upside pitching prospect who also happened to have intriguing raw power as a hitter. After going ballistic with Team USA’s gold-medal winning 18U national team and winning MVP of the World Cup, Eldridge is one of the top two-way prospects in the class with a similar profile to a righthanded-throwing Spencer Jones. Eldridge is an imposing figure on the mound with a 6-foot-7, 233-pound frame and works with a solid delivery and three-quarter slot. He’s added velocity as he’s added strength to his frame, and sits in the low 90s while touching as high as 96. He throws with a downhill plane thanks to his height, inducing plenty of ground balls with his fastball, slider and changeup. The slider and curveball will occasionally blend together in the low 80s, and his mid-80s changeup was infrequently thrown and needs more feel. Eldridge repeats his delivery well and throws quality strikes thanks to excellent athleticism and body control. As a hitter, Eldridge has massive raw power that is near the best in the prep class. He’s shown the ability to access that power in games to all fields, and while there’s a bit of swing-and-miss he is viewed as a legitimate first round bat given his power upside despite profiling as a first baseman with well below-average speed. He can play fine defense at first with a large target. Eldridge dealt with an ankle injury this spring, and is committed to Alabama.
