An Oregon native, Middleton wound up at Lane because it was one of the few schools who recruited him to play both basketball and baseball. At 6-foot-3 and 210-pounds, he is a live-bodied athlete who also plays shooting guard. While he's good enough on the court to merit mid-major Division I interest, he has much more pro potential on the mound. Middleton's athleticism and upside intrigued scouts this spring and was pushing him up draft boards late, even though he is raw on the mound because he has never focused on baseball and hasn't received much quality coaching until this year. Coming straight off the basketball court this spring, Middleton threw his fastball in the 90-91 mph range, but topped out at 95. He throws a slider and a curveball. The former is a better pitch with tight rotation at 82-83 mph. He can get poor hitters to chase his curveball, but can't yet command it for strikes. Middleton has a changeup, but doesn't use it much in college.
