Scouting Scratch (08.16.17)

Physical Description: Muscular, athletic frame. Looks the part. Listed at 6-foot-4, 190 pounds. Hasn’t lost any of his football athleticism.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Live arm. Starts with a wide base. Delivery is controlled with some effort including a stab behind and short, quick, arm action forward. Very quick arm, so much, that it often gets out of sync with the rest of his delivery. Has a tendency to miss to his glove side when his arm gets out ahead of his body, and struggles to locate on the inner half of the plate to right-handed hitters.

Fastball: 92-95 mph. Tops out at 98 mph. Command and control are a work in progress. Straight, lacks life. Doesn’t miss bats like you’d expect of someone with his velocity. Gives up a lot of hard contact due to lack of fastball command. Pitch needs refinement, but could develop into a plus offering.

Slider: 83-88 mph. At its best will show power break with depth. Can bury down and out of the zone when ahead in the count to miss bats. At the lower end of the velocity range. Pitch is on the loose side and lacks bite. Release point varies. Will flash anywhere from below-average to plus potential depending on the game scouted.

Changeup: 83-85 mph. Throws with deceptive arm speed. Some feel. Willing to use in any count and will show drop. Average to better potential.

Career Notes: Signed to play football at Western Oregon before enrolling at Clark and committing to baseball. Missed the entire 2016 season due to Tommy John surgery.

Summation: Wide gap between where he is at presently and his ceiling. Low floor - could never make it out of A-Ball. Has the ceiling of a starter, but likely better suited in a bullpen role depending on how his fastball command develops and consistency with secondary pitches. Has the early makings of a three pitch mix and strong, athletic pitchers frame. Development will be slow, but could rise up the system rankings very quickly if things click.
