Collins, a three-year varsity performer for the Indians’ pitching staff, should be the leading ace in the Hart pitching staff in 2018. Collins recorded a 5-2 record in 2017, and showed a talented array of pitches by striking out a team-leading 55 hitters in 57 innings. Collins dazzles hitters with a four-pitch array from his top-notch arm, and the coaching staff expects his performance should skyrocket in 2018. Collins, threw two complete-game shutouts last year, has dramatically improved his spin rate on the fastball and secondary pitches, and his command of the strike zone has marked strides. Collins’ stuff develops with his improved reliance on his long toss program, and maintaining a dedication to the conditioning program.
