In a loaded crop of Florida junior college talent, Spicer is among the most intriguing prospects. He's a strike-throwing righthander who has the potential for two above-average or better pitches. Spicer's fastball works comfortably at 90-93 mph and he can hit 94, even later on in outings. He flashes above-average movement on his fastball, which he likes to run in on the hands of righthanded hitters. Spicer throws a sharp vertical slider. The pitch flashes powerful bite and late diving action in the low 80s, and it grades out as a future 55 or 60 on the 20-to-80 scouting scale. He also throws a curveball in the upper 70s. He's able to locate his fastball and slider down and to both sides of the plate, in addition to using his breaking ball as a chase pitch below the strike zone. Spicer was sidelined with a foot contusion later on in the spring, and his stuff was a little bit down when he returned right at the end of the season. Spicer is committed to Central Florida, where he could blossom into an even more prominent draft prospect if he chooses not to sign this year. He's expected to be valued in the fourth to seventh round.
