Scouting Scratch: Fall Instructs Part Three (10.4.16)

Physical Description: Sturdy frame. Heavier than listed. Thick lower half. Minimal remaining projection in lower half, but some in upper body.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot from the first base side. Effort in delivery. Long arm action with loop behind. Will cut delivery off at times and doesn’t stay in line to the plate. Inconsistent release.

Fastball: 91-95 mph. Pitch has some life. Fringy command and control profile. Potential plus offering.

Slider: 84-86 mph. Short, vertical break. Inconsistent release. Doesn’t stay over the ball consistently. Will wrap ball and yank glove side.

Career Notes: Pitched as a reliever in the DSL in 2016 during his age 18 season.

Summation: Relief only profile. Has some arm strength and can run fastball up to the mid-90s, but slider needs significant refinement to project as more than an organizational arm.
