Scouting Scratch: Fall Instructs Part Three (10.10.14)
Notes from the Field (4.25.18)

Physical Description: Slightly under-sized, athletic left-hander. Seemingly filled out throughout.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot from the third base side of the rubber. Athletic, compact, methodical delivery. Stays closed off in his delivery, showing his back to the hitter, and repeats well.

Fastball: 89-91 mph. Shows arm-side run and sink. Generates lots of ground balls. Velocity drops as he works deeper into games. Lacks plane due to height.

Curveball: 73-76 mph. Will show tight 1-7 rotation when he finishes his delivery and snaps it off. Can throw for strikes in early in counts. Potential average pitch.

Slider: 79-80 mph. Average tilt and will throw in any count.

Changeup: 79-82 mph. Decent feel and deceptive arm speed. Ability to throw for strikes in any count. Average fade and movement.

Career Notes: Missed 2015 with a bad knee injury.

Summation: Potential Quad-A type starter. Ceiling of an up and down emergency starter. Lack of projection physically. Average stuff across the board with the ability to command and control all pitches and for strikes in any counts. Advanced pitchability and sequencing. Lacks a put-away pitch to profile out of the pen.
