The Write-Up (10.19.15)
Scouting Scratch (6.24.16)

Physical Description: Large, soft body. Much heavier than listed weight of 230 pounds. No physical projection. Physical conditioning will require constant monitoring.

Mechanics: Starts on the third base side and throws over the top. Vertical, arm-heavy delivery. Minimal momentum going forward. Slight arm loop behind.

Fastball: 91-93 mph. Tops out at 95 mph. Shows some cut at lower velocities, but is straight when harder. Pitch shows some life, but has poor command and control. Plus velocity, but pitch will play lower due to lack of movement and command profile. 

Slider: 83-85 mph. Short, vertical break. Sharp at times, but inconsistent. Average potential.

Changeup: 81-86 mph. Looks like a fastball he took something off when harder. Will flash fade at lower velocities, but slows arm. Below-average potential.

Career Notes: Missed the 2014 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery.

Summation: Large right-hander was still pitching in short-season in his fifth year in the organization--started 2016 in Greenville but only lasted one month. Velocity ticked up after Tommy John surgery, but secondary pitches lag behind and his delivery is tough to repeat. Will struggle to get out of the low minors.
