    View Draft Report
    Providence High has churned out several prospects in recent years, including Clemson's Richie Shaffer and North Carolina State catcher Brett Austin, and scouts were back this spring to see a tall, projectable righty in Buttrey. An Arkansas signee, Buttrey is 6-foot-5, 205 pounds and had early buzz this spring after touching 96 mph with his fastball. His velocity dropped off a bit later in the spring, attributable to him being used as a reliever between starts, and had been sitting 90-93 mph. Buttrey works quickly, throwing 6 1/3 innings in a start in April that lasted less than 90 minutes. His second pitch is a hard knuckle-curve that has downer action and sits 77-79 mph. He also mixes in a changeup that shows good fade at times. Already 19 years old, Buttrey is one of the older players in the high school class.
