Scouts circled Lacy's name at the 2016 Area Code Games, where his fastball reached bumped 90 mph and he showed flashes with a tumbling, low-80s changeup. He found a little bit more velocity at the WWBA Championships in the fall and continued to fill in his 6-foot-4 frame over the winter. Lacy shows advanced pitchability, showing the feel to locate his stuff down in the strike zone. He hides the ball well at his back hip and gets downward plane on his fastball from a higher three-quarter arm slot that stems from an exaggerated spine tilt towards his glove side. Ultimately, he's likely to pitch with an average or slightly better fastball and an above-average changeup. Ultimately, he'll have to continue making progress with his breaking ball to have an effective third offering. Committed to Texas A&M, Lacy is a projection play and could pique a team's interest in the top five rounds, or he could become an immediate contributor for the Aggies if he is unsignable where teams value him.
