Mick Abel


    Mick Abel  is a Baseball player hailing from Tigard, Oregon. The player stands 6ft 5 inches tall and weighs 185 lb. His robust and strong physique enables him to throw at speeds of 96 miles per hour with ease. Abel played an instrumental role in guiding his Jesuit High School to the state title with his impressive pitching and was also named the Gatorade Player of the Year.

    Moreover, Abel went on to become the first high school player from the state of Oregon to be picked in the first round since the left-handed Matt Smith in the 1994 draft.

    His impressive 82-86 mph slides are well effective to cause concerns to the opposition.

    Mick Abel: The Player

    In 2018, Mick Abel was selected for the USA 17U National Team Development Program. In the following year, Abel was also chosen for the National Team Training Roster. Abel has a commitment to Oregan State in 2021.

    However, this may not be the same after the MLB draft. The Oregan State recruit is expected to grow and improve his abilities further as he still has many years ahead of him. It is believed that Abel will grow stronger and throw the ball at even quicker in the years to come.

    The making of Mick Abel

    He is a crafty player who demonstrated the tremendous speed at a range of  93-95 mph with a fastball consistently. He throws the ball at a law directed to the downhill right to the bottom of the zone and then returns with a four-seamer straight up in the zone with peak riding action.

    His remarkable skills in top rotation and slider of 82-86 mph have distinguished him further as a talented player. These two skills of his often merge and have fewer differences which makes it hard to differentiate between the two.

    However, he has made significant differentiation between the two to achieve praise for both of his throws. This makes us see the potential he carries as a player. He has a bright future as most of his fans believe he can establish himself as a talented player who plays efficiently making use of his good arm speed and amazing features.

    The Oregon State recruit throws strikes at him usually, which helps him showcase his maturity as a player. The recruiters believe as he gets older and mature, he will show further maturity and transformation in his playing method.

    He already proved his worth by displaying his stronger  and powerful gameplay in an outing in early 2020, spring where he came out as a player with great potential. This gave him the chance to secure the first prep arm in June.
