Perfect Game Profile

From Prep Baseball Report
Blackburn established himself as one of the most intriguing right-handers in the class during the late spring, early summer. Blackburn operates from a lower-3/4 arm slot, and gets tremendous late run on his mid-to-upper-80s fastball. Blackburn also throws a sharp slider that has the potential to be a plus pitch at the next level. As a junior, he went 4-3 with a 4.70 ERA and notched 64 Ks in 52.2 innings.
