Player Statement

My name is Luke Zelinko, and I attend Avonworth High School in Pittsburgh, PA. I take pride in both my academic, and athletic performance, which is reflected by my grades in the classroom and achievements on the field. While consistently maintaining a 4.00+ GPA, I have excelled as a pitcher, which has resulted in being the only sophmore pitcher on the high school varsity team, tier 1 selection to the PA State Games in June 2022, ranked by Prep Baseball Report as a top pitcher in the state of Pennsylvania, and most recently, selected to play for the 24 US Elite National team. It is my hope to attend a college where I can be challenged both academically and athletically. Thank you for visiting my profile.

Mount St. Mary's Camp Evaluation

FB Velo 82-86 FB Spin 2300 BB Velo 71-74 BB Spin 2250

Strong quick arm! Tons of whip out of some length and leverage. Arm action is not fluid but is very effective and should retain health long term. Spins the ball very well (Change up at 83 mph/2300 rpm). Very unique movement profiles with a Fastball that carries well through the zone, Breaker that spins hard and bites, and Change Up that spins very, very fast for the pitch type with carried arm-side run through the zone (less sink than the typical Change, a much quicker darting movement). Some rawness to the overall mechanics—highly projectible with additional maturity. Tons of room to grow---a likely D1 pitcher!

2024 RHP Luke Zelinko (Avonworth, PA) Simple and easy delivery, long arm-swing, FB peaked 83 from a high 3/4 slot. Exciting SO to keep eyes on #BeSeen

‘24 RHP Luke Zelinko (Avonworth Area) with moderate effort and a simple delivery. Stayed in rhythm with clean hand-break timing, releasing from a bigger arm-circle up to 80 mph. Natural SL shape with lateral tilt to it (74-76) creating deception.
