Scott Silverstein

School: St. John’s College HS (Washington, DC)

Class: HS Senior

Height: 6′5″

Weight: 210 lbs.

Bats: Left

Throws: Left

Pos: LHP

Hometown: Brookeville, MD

Commitment: Virginia

Previously Drafted: None

Strengths:
Silverstein is a rare blend of present stuff and projection. He throws a low 90s fastball with run and a sharp slider. Silverstein uses a deceptive delivery and a high sidearm release to fool hitters. He’s 6-foot-5, so scouts expect he’ll improve his fastball velocity as he fills out.

Weaknesses:
Silverstein is a good student who goes to an elite private school. He has a strong commitment to Virginia.

The Future:
If a team thinks it can sign him, he could be drafted in the middle of the first round. [UPDATE: 4/23] Silverstein has been shut down for the rest of the high school season with tightness in his shoulder.  He will DH for St. John’s.
