Scouting Scratch: Quick-hitters from Lowell (9.11.17)

Physical Description: Average height, lean frame with long legs and a high waist. Some projection remaining.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Starts on the first base side of the rubber. Uses a stiff, jerky delivery with lots of moving parts that creates deception but hinders his control and command.

Fastball: 87-90 mph, Tops out at 91 mph. Struggles to control the pitch. Will use sparingly in some outings in favor of cutter. Average velocity, but pitch will play below that due to lack of command and control.

Cutter: 86-88 mph. Short, horizontal movement. Feel and confidence in pitch. Most effective against righties, where he has shown the ability to locate the pitch in on their hands. Average potential offering.

Slider: 80-82 mph. More on the vertical side with inconsistent shape. Will show some depth on occasion. Projects as a below-average offering.

Changeup: Firm and straight. Lacks a feel for the pitch. Has not featured consistently in the outings scouted.

Career Notes: Showed reverse platoon splits during his pro debut.

Summation: Has shown the ability to miss bats in the low minors, but command and control need to take a major step forward. Cutter is an intriguing pitch, but needs another pitch to improve to complement it. Left-handedness gives him an advantage and with refinement could develop into an organizational lefty type.
