Scouting Scratch: High minors bullpen arms (5.28.15)

Scouting Report: Tall right-hander with strong frame with minimal remaining projection. Throws from the first base side of the rubber, using a three-quarters arm slot. Controlled delivery with arm action that is a little long behind. Threw sidearm for two seasons prior to the 2013 season. Velocity jumped into the low-90s with the new delivery. Fastball currently sits 91-93 mph and tops out at 95 mph. Pitch has some arm-side run. Fringe command, but above-average control. Generates easy velocity. Generates a lot of groundballs. Above-average potential. Best secondary offering is a 79-82 mph circle changeup. Advanced feel for the pitch. Pitch shows drop and is thrown with deceptive arm speed. Can pull the string on the pitch. Solid velocity separation from fastball. Has the confidence to throw the pitch in any count. Also has above-average potential. Also mixes in a low-80s slider. Horizontal movement, but a work in progress at this point. Does not throw it often and pitch is inconsistent. Changeup has potential to be true out pitch at the big league level. Lack of a third offering limits ceiling, but has the ability to become as a sixth-/seventh-inning reliever with a relatively high floor and low risk.
