2013 Top 40 Season in Review

Scouting Report: Tall right-hander with long and lean frame. Body to add weight as he physically matures into his mid-twenties. Mid-3/4 arm slot. Possesses a 92-95 mph heavy fastball. Shows late life. Creates strong downhill leverage with delivery. Can top out at 97 mph. Smooth weight transfers and stride. Average command. Can lose crispness and release point as he gets deeper into an outing. 85-87 mph slider has plus potential, but presently grades as fringe-average-to-average. Shows depth and late break off the table. Swing-and-miss potential. Needs improvement with consistency of keeping arm in slot when throwing the slider. Can wrap wrist and lose break. 79-81 mph changeup is a work in progress. Does not show strong feel for the pitch. Improvement burying pitch deeper in hand and generating consistent arm speed is needed. On the raw side for pitcher coming out of college, but has room for growth with stuff. Will start in early career to stretch him out and allow him to work on improving arsenal. Likely reliever as he progresses as a pro, with potential as a set-up man or closer.
