Scouting Scratch: Notes from the backfields (3.19.15)
2015 Top 40 Season in Review

Physical Description: Lean, tall frame. Some projection remaining. Very athletic as he was a converted center fielder.

Mechanics:
Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Mechanics are a work in progress, struggles to find a consistent release point and repeat arm slot. Starts standing tall on the third base side of the rubber. Utilizes a high leg kick and short arm action. Lot of moving parts in delivery. Quick arm. Arm tends to get out of sync from the rest of his delivery.

Fastball:
93-97 mph. Pitch is straight. Plus-plus velocity, but needs to make significant strides with his command and control.

Slider:
86-87 mph. Inconsistent pitch. Will show two-plane shape on occasion lacks feel.

Changeup:
83 mph. Slows arm. Will show drop.

Career Notes:
Converted to pitching full time in 2018 after four seasons as an outfielder.

Summation:
Very raw at present, but an intriguing project. Already shows premium velocity from the left-side and athleticism give him a chance. Needs a lot of work to become a pitcher, more of a thrower right now. Has big league potential if he can take to pitching.
