Scouting Report
: Capellan works with an arsenal of three pitches that he mixes in well.  His fastball sits around 89-91 mph and moves slightly away from righties and in on lefties.  Doesn't get enough swings-and-misses with his fastball, but he does have good enough command to paint corners.  His mid-70s curveball is above-average to plus with a nice bite, but Capellan still needs to perfect his command of the pitch.  The curve is his best pitch, and he uses it to get out of jams very well.  Variations of his curve can also get up to the mid-80s with a slurve-type movement.  His changeup sits around 78-79 mph and is average-to-above-average.  Capellan's 3/4 delivery is fairly smooth and repeatable.  As a lefty, he has a quick sidearm pickoff move to first base.  Great clubhouse guy, mature and intimidating mound presence. Good focus. Needs to work on keeping his weight down. Poor fielder.
