Scouting Report: Buttrey is a highly projectable power pitcher with good size. Still needs to grow into his frame. Easy delivery with clean arm action from a high 3/4 arm slot. Struggles with repeating delivery and keeping line to the plate. Fastball sits 89-92 mph, presently topping out at 94 mph. Reportedly topped out at 96 mph in high school. Potential for more velocity as he matures. Needs to pitch with downward plane more consistently. Fastball lacks life and doesn’t miss enough bats. Buttrey also features a good knuckle-curve that he throws between 74-78 mph. Has flashed some plus potential. Doesn’t always finish pitch and can get loopy at times. Developing change-up with good arm action in the 82-84 mph range. Deceptive, throws with good arm speed. Average offering that at its best shows late drop. Ceiling of a mid-rotation starter, but a lot of that is based on projection. He has a long way to go to reach that ceiling. On the older side for a high school pick.
