Fairchild helped St. Thomas (coached by future Hall of Famer Craig Biggio) to consecutive Texas 5-A private-school titles in 2010 and 2011 and a runner-up finish this spring. Six-foot-1 and 175 pounds, he has added significant velocity in the past year and now works at 88-91 mph. He touched 94 last summer, though the extra heat has come with more effort and less fluidity in his delivery, which he struggles to repeat. He shows some feel for spinning the ball, though his breaker varies between a curve and a slider. He has committed to Texas Christian.
