Nolan Gannon at the Fall Classic
By Andrew Knepper
Nolan Gannon is a top-notch pitching prospect out of Santa Fe Christian, (San Diego, Calif). Loaded with the prototypical workhorse pitcher's frame, 6-foot-4, 195 pounds, Gannon is turning heads of Major League scouts with his potential of being a big league arm down the line.
Pitching from the right side, he brings the heat with a low 90’s fastball that has a good downward plane. His off-speed stuff consists of a good curveball that breaks in around 77-75 mph and a changeup we were unable to see as he was working the curve primarily.
Gannon is going to be a fun prospect to watch through out this upcoming season.
