Physical Description

Brickhouse has an average frame, and he's broad at the shoulders and strong in the lower half. He's well proportioned and figures to add a little strength down the road.

Mechanics

The delivery is a strength for Brickhouse, as he repeats very well and delivers with ease. His extension is good and he stays on line with the plate pitch after pitch. He comes straight over the top, and overall has the look of an advanced pitcher with a lot of experience.

Fastball

Brickhouse started off slow last summer velocity wise, but settled in around 91-93 mph by the end of the showcase circuit. The fastball command is good, and he's confident in locating on the inside part of the plate to left-handed hitters. His command suffers a bit from the stretch, however, as he does his velocity.

Curveball

The curveball is a strength for the 6-foot-2 righty, as he shows tight spin on a 77-78 mph breaker. This will be about an average offering at the big league level. He locates even behind in the count and uses it with as much conviction as he uses his fastball.

Changeup

What makes Brickhouse intriguing is that he's a legitimate three pitch pitcher, and that includes his changeup. He flashes good fade and arm speed on an 80-84 mph changeup and locates it with regularity.

Summation

Brickhouse doesn't have the physical presence of some of the top arms in the class and has good, but not plus stuff. So, this will keep him from going overly early. But, his feel for pitching and ability to mix three pitches make him a potential fast moving high school arm.
