    Clemmey has high-octane stuff and high risk that comes with it, a profile that has drawn big crowds to his starts this spring. Clemmey is 6-foot-6, 205 pounds and turns 18 shortly after the draft, so he’s one of the younger players in the 2023 class. His size, age and power arm from the left side are all appealing, with a fastball that sits at 92-96 mph and reaches 98 with riding life up in the zone. When it’s on, Clemmey has a curveball that flashes plus at 77-80 mph with sharp bite to miss bats, though some scouts felt that pitch hasn’t been quite as tight this year as it was last summer. It’s mostly a fastball/curveball attack for Clemmey, but he has shown feel for a changeup with good sink at times. The biggest questions for Clemmey stem from his control and delivery, and ultimately about whether he will throw enough strikes to start. He has an aggressive, high-effort delivery that’s difficult for him to repeat, with bouts of wildness and a track record of high walks. Clemmey’s mechanics and control troubles lead a lot of scouts to think his future is in the bullpen, a tough profile for a high school draft pick. If a team believes it can help Clemmey iron out his control, his pure stuff could make him an early-round pick.
