Bivens was one of the breakout stars at the World Wood Bat Championships in Jupiter, Fla., last fall, sustaining 90-92 mph velocity through six innings, after pitching at 88-91 over the summer. He has maintained that velocity this spring with a delivery that generates downhill plane from a high three-quarters arm slot. He also has an out pitch in a curveball that shows plus potential. He has not had to use his changeup much. Bivens throws enough strikes to remain as a starter, though his control is ahead of his command. The 6-foot-2, 205-pounder has a well-proportioned build with strength and limited physical projection. He is committed to Liberty, which is less than an hour from his home. Bivens was shut down after a complete-game, 130-pitch outing in early May. He continued to play first base during the state playoffs for George Washington but reportedly was going to pitch only in predraft workouts.
