Many consider Main to be the top prospect available for next year's draft from the prep ranks. He is an incredibly gifted athlete whose fastball has been clocked as high as 99 mph. Despite his high velocity readings and natural athleticism, there is some effort to Main's delivery, which leads some to believe he might be a closer down the road. However, that's not a decision that needs to be made anytime soon, and prep pitchers that can touch 99 don't grow on trees. His delivery is a little unorthodox in that he has a very slow windup before speeding up his body through his delivery with somewhat of a max effort placed on his arm. Main's breaking ball and offspeed pitches need some work, but the foundation is there. He will also need to improve his fastball command to succeed at the next level, but again, he has the foundation to be a natural ace at the highest level. When he's not pitching, Main is also a gift hitter and defender in centerfield, and could be considered a first-round pick as a positional prospect if it weren't for his special right arm.
