The high school pitching career of the top right-handed prospect in Connecticut, Miles Langhorne, has come to an end as his team prepares for a semifinal matchup in the CIAC tournament.
Vanderbilt commit and MLB Draft prospect Miles Langhorne, a Greenwich High senior, told New England Baseball Journal that he will not return to the mound for his team's semifinal matchup against Norwalk on Tuesday or for a state championship game on Saturday, if his team advances. Langhorne was removed in the second inning of a start against Newtown on June 2 due to tightness in his right arm.
"Unfortunately, I'm done pitching for the high school season," Langhorne said. "The plan right now is to be back on the mound by July 4. I'll start up again with the Worcester Bravehearts (of the Futures Collegiate Baseball League)."
If Langhorne is able to return to the mound in that time frame, it would give him about a week before the 2021 MLB Draft (July 11 to 13) to prove to scouts that he's healthy enough to garner a seven-figure investment. Langhorne was expected to earn a selection in the top two or three rounds of the 2021 MLB Draft prior to this injury scare.
