Focus Area
Fastball:St. Clair's fastball sat in the 88-92 mph range.
Fastball movement:It's almost a requirement for a lefty to have some life on his fastball and St. Clair has it.
Curve:St. Clair's curve is slurvy, but it has some tilt and depth and he throws it for strikes.
Control:St. Clair throws his fastball and his curve for strikes.
Poise:Usually Rice's closer, St. Clair doesn't shy away from pressure situations.
Physical Description:St. Clair is a big-bodied pitcher with a herky jerky delivery.
Medical Update:St. Clair missed the first chunk of the season because of an injured shoulder he hurt lifting weights. This was just his third outing of the season, but he appeared healthy.
Strengths:Two decent pitches with deception that helps play up his stuff.
Weaknesses:While he was a closer in college, he doesn't profile as one at the next level. Because of the injury, he hasn't been on the mound enough to get a good read on him.
Summary:St. Clair missed the first two months of the season with a shoulder injury, but was showing signs of being the same reliever he'd been previously at Rice. He won't be a closer at the next level, but there's more there than just a lefty specialist. He's got tools to attack right-handed hitters as well and could be an intriguing setup man for someone in the future.
