2016 Stohs Prospect Handbook Profile: When Pearce was signed by the Twins in July of 2013, he became the eighth player from South Africa to sign to play in America. He was the second Twins player (Hein Robb). He debuted in the States in 2014 in the GCL. Pearce is 6-3 and 190 pounds. He is a terrific athlete with good speed and quickness off the mound. He throws his fastball in the upper-80s, though he can touch 92. He is working on a slider which was in the low-80s. His best pitch might be his changeup, though at times it isn’t more than four or five mph slower than his fastball. It’s all still a work-in-progress for the youngster, but there is talent here. The biggest thing is he’ll need to continue working on his control.
