A Virginia commit, Neeck is an athletic lefthander with a fluid delivery that features some deception. He missed some time earlier in the spring due to a minor back injury, but has since returned to the mound and pitched well. Neeck's fastball sits comfortably in the 88-91 mph range, touching 92, and features some arm-side run. Neeck shows good feel for a solid-average slider, especially when he throws it in the low 80s and it features more sharp break than slurvy shape. He consistently finds the strike zone with both his fastball and slider, but a lack of a third pitch--which he doesn't really need against New York prep competition--is at least a mild cause for concern when considering his chance to be a starting pitcher at the next level. A team selecting Neeck in the top three rounds is not out of the question.
