Neidert was one of the top performers at the WWBA World Championship last fall. He threw a complete game two-hitter and his fastball was the fourth hardest at the event, according to TrackMan data. He carried that momentum over to the spring and was off to a fine start to the season before coming down with elbow tendinitis. He was able to get back on the mound before the season ended and showed solid stuff. At his best, Neidert runs his fastball up to 95 mph and comfortably sits in the low 90s with lively action down in the zone. He repeats his delivery well and fills up the zone with ease. Neidert shows some feel for spinning the ball, but because he throws from a low three-quarters slot he will likely need to transform his breaking ball into a true slider. Both it and his changeup could develop into average offerings, but he lacks an out pitch right now. The biggest knock against Neidert is his size. He is listed at 6-foot-1, 185 pounds and doesn't project to get much bigger. One scout compared his build to Tim Hudson. While Neidert has good athleticism, he will not be a two-way player in college like Hudson was at Auburn if he upholds his commitment to South Carolina.
