Dispatches from the Fort 2014 (3.27.14)
Scouting Scratch: Fall Instructs Part One (10.8.14)
Scouting Scratch: Cosart, Glorius... (7.12.16)

Physical Description: Large, soft, bad body. Lacks physical conditioning and projection. Looks heavier than listed weight.

Mechanics: High-three quarters arm slot. Low effort delivery. Lacks momentum and extension. Arm heavy delivery with high leg kick from the first base side. Works quickly.

Fastball: 85-87 mph. Lacks life. Will show cut. Doesn’t miss bats. Below-average potential.

Curveball: 68-71 mph. Long break. Slow, loopy and doesn’t consistently snap off. Tends to roll to the plate. Below-average potential.

Changeup:  80-82 mph. Will show some fade. Average potential.

Summation: Below-average, three-pitch mix and lack of projection in frame limit upside. Will likely struggle should he reach the high-minors against more advanced bats due to lack of a put-away pitch and well below-average velocity.
