Scouting Scratch (7.3.13)

Physical Description: Filled-out, sturdy pitcher’s frame. Looks listed height and weight. Minimal projection.

Mechanics: Throws directly over the top from the first base side. Jerky delivery with a lot of effort. Starts closed and uses a high leg kick. Lands stiff on front side with recoil. Poor posture in delivery.

Fastball: 91-93 mph. Tops out at 95 mph. Straight. Average life, some sink when down in the zone. Throws strikes, around the plate. Above-average potential.

Splitter: 82-84 mph. Late tumble and drop. Has shown bat-missing potential. Solid feel. Average potential.

Slider: 80-82 mph. Short, vertical break. Below-average potential.  

Summation: Projects as an organizational arm. Fastball/splitter combination is intriguing, but lacks consistency from outing to outing.
