I mentioned Lanphere in Matt's California draft piece, posting the video here since it would probably get lost in that thread. Was using a four pitch mix, probably could have dominated with just FB and one of the breaking balls. Think he just needs to work on repeating the delivery a little more consistently. . . ended up with a 1 hit shutout with 11 k's, FB topped at 93, slowest curveball was at 66
Frazier's first home run of the night, a 3-run shot in the 4th inning.

Every pitch from Sean Manaea's start on August 3rd against the Brewster Whitecaps. Manaea, who has emerged this summer in the Cape League, was recently ranked as the #3 prospect for the 2013 draft by Baseball America. He threw eight innings, allowing one hit (an infield single by Fresno State OF Aaron Judge) and one walk while striking out ten. Many more Cape videos to come on my YouTube channel (capeprospectvids)!
