Lucchesi pitches his way into consideration as a priority senior sign after he added a tick to his fastball this season. The lefty sits at 91-93 and touches 94 mph now with an above-average fastball. The fastball sets up his downer curveball that he can manipulate depending on the count--he'll sweep it more to keep it in the zone, then he'll bury it later in counts for strikeouts. It's an average offering as well and his fringe-average changeup shows excellent late action at times. He knows how to use his stuff as well; Lucchesi was leading the nation in strikeouts with 149 headed into regional play.
