Scouting Scratch: Young Arms (4.1.15)
Scouting Scratch: Steen, De Jesus... (6.24.16)

Physical Description: Large right-hander with a soft body. Looks heavier than listed weight, closer to 230 pounds. Minimal physical projection, will have to watch conditioning has he gets older.

Mechanics: Throws from a high three-quarters to over-the-top slot from the third base side. Falls off hard in his delivery, with poor balance and posture and an arm hook behind. Lacks arm speed. Some front-side deception.

Fastball: 84-86 mph. Tops out at 87 mph. Throws strikes, pitch lacks life and is on the straight side. Velocity drops as he works deeper into games. Below-average potential.

Curveball: 68-71 mph. Long 12-to-6 break. Pitch is on the slow, loopy side. Has some feel and can throw for strikes or bury down in the zone. Fringe average potential.

Changeup: 82-83 mph. Slows arm. Lacks differential from fastball. Well below-average potential.

Summation: Tall right-hander has a big frame, but stuff doesn’t match up. Gets outs by mixing pitches and throwing strikes, but doesn’t project to miss enough bats. Unless stuff takes a significant step forward, will struggle to get out of the low minors.
