2013 Prospect Preview
Scouting Scratch: Jamie Callahan and Tzu-Wei Lin (6.26.13)
2013 Top 40 Season in Review
Dispatches from the Fort: Spring Training 2014 (3.27.14)
2014 Top 40 Season in Review
Scouting Scratch: Notes from the backfields (3.19.15)
Notes from the Field: Devers power display... (5.6.15)

Physical Description: Solid, athletic frame. Strong lower half, but room to fill out in upper body.  

Mechanics: Throws almost directly over the top. Stiff, rigid mechanics with jerk in his delivery. Quick arm. Controlled, easy delivery at first, then dips and comes towards the plate.  

Fastball: 91-94 mph. Tops out at 96 mph. Solid-average potential. Velocity has increased since he entered the organization, but is inconsistent from outing to outing and has shown a tendency to decrease as the season has gone along. On the straight side, but shows some downward action when he finishes his delivery. Well-below average command and control.  

Curveball: 76-80 mph. Solid-average potential. Long 12-to-6 break. When he snaps it off, shows tight rotation and good depth. Has feel for the pitch.  

Changeup: 82-84 mph. Fringe-average potential. Work in progress. Slows arm and on the firm side.  

Cutter: 86-87 mph. Throws sparingly.  

Career notes: Had committed to South Carolina prior to signing. Was very young for his draft class.  

Summation: Back-end starter to long reliever profile. Command and control need to make significant strides to profile as a starter.
