Laskey hasn’t pitched much this season, making it difficult for scouts to assess him for the draft. A 6-foot-3, 205-pound lefthander, Laskey was a full-time starter in each of his first two seasons with the Blue Devils, though he posted 5+ ERAs in both seasons. He broke out over the summer in the Cape Cod League, where he went 5-0 and posted a 1.19 ERA with 26 strikeouts and 11 walks in 30.1 innings. With that performance for Falmouth, Laskey was named the league’s pitcher of the year. None of Laskey’s pitches are plus when healthy, but he has a solid three-pitch mix of average to above-average offerings including a fastball that gets into the low 90s and a solid breaking ball and changeup. He has feel for both of his secondaries, but with a spotty track record in the ACC and just 12 innings under his belt this spring, will be a difficult draft decision for teams.
