Luensmann is one of many projectable high school arms from Pennsylvania this year. Armed with a projectable 6-foot-3 frame and wide shoulders, Luensmann shows promise with three pitches. He has a funky delivery, with a high leg kick to start and a short-to-long arm action. Luensmann has outstanding arm speed and finishes with excellent extension out front. His fastball works in the upper 80s, occasionally touching 90 mph, and the pitch shows heavy sinking action down in the zone. The righthander pitches off of his fastball and has a knack for generating ground balls. He has shown feel for a curveball, a slider, and a changeup, with the slider being his best secondary at present, but his offspeed stuff needs tightening. Luensmann is an above-average athlete and has advanced pitchability. He is committed to Nebraska, where he could have an immediate impact should no pro team meet his asking price.

RHP Chad Luensmann is physical. Heavy FB in high 80s. Secondary needs development, but interesting arm. Nebraska recruit. #Mets #mlbdraft

Luenesmann: 87-88, very lean and all legs. High leg kick, gets low, good sink/run from low 3/4. Casts curve and had trouble getting it down.

Right hander Chad Luensmann (2015, Altoona, Penn.) sat 88-90 mph but his fastball played up a couple ticks because of the sharp, late tailing life on it. His delivery has some funk to it and he backed his darting fastball with a sharp slider that he showed occasional feel for starting off in the low glove side corner to induce chases in the mid-70s. He also showed a slower breaking curveball with more depth in the upper-60s to low-70s and an occasional low-70s changeup. Luensmann allowed just an unearned run over five innings without issuing a walk, giving up only one hit and he struck out a pair, inducing nine of his 11 batted ball outs via the ground ball.

"We talked about how much money it would take to be an insurance policy for my arm," Luensmann said. "I'm probably going to go to Nebraska."

Luensmann said he was looking for a six-figure bonus that would have equated with being picked "probably in the fourth or fifth round." That slot amounts to somewhere between $355,500 and $535,000.

Now We Know How Much it Would Take

Sounds like it's very unlikely
