Scouting Report: Returns as one of the top starters not only for Bellevue, but in the entire region as well...velocity and movement on his fastball and has confidence in his hard curve and change up at all times...increased velocity now puts Buckham on the pro scout map...pitches comfortably in the 87-90 mph range as a lefty who throws strikes, gets outs, wins, and has good durabilty.
