Ockimey, Fisher adjust to pro life in first spring training (4.6.15)
Notes from the Field (3.17.17)
Notes from the Field (4.23.18)

Physical Description: Converted catcher with a short, stocky build and no physical projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a three quarters arm slot. Starts on the first base side of the rubber. Short arm action. Quick arm.

Fastball: 93-95 mph. Command and control are a work in progress.

Slider: 83-85 mph. Still developing feel for the pitch, but will flash above-average potential with two-plane break.

Changeup: 82-83 mph. Has shown the ability to pull the string on the pitch and bury it down in the zone to elicit swings and misses. Needs to improve consistency with the pitch.

Career Notes: Drafted in 2014 out of high school as a strong-armed defensive-minded catcher. Did not hit enough in two years in the system. Has shown improvements each year since converting. Like many conversion projects, needs to work on an accelerated schedule through the system due to impending minor league free agency.

Summation: At this stage profiles as an organizational pitcher, but has the potential to make ongoing improvements to his control and refinement of his secondary pitches, which leaves open the door for further advancement.
