Scouting Scratch: Fall Instructs Part One (9.27.16)

Physical Description: Sturdy, filled-out pitcher’s frame. Minimal remaining projection. Looks listed height and weight.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot starting on the first base side of the rubber. Doesn’t use a wind-up. Has a high leg kick and slight trunk twist adding some deception. Keeps arm behind until late. Clean arm action. Works quick.

Fastball: 88-90 mph. Tops out at 91 mph. Pitch shows natural cut and jumps on hitters due to deception in delivery. Advanced present control of the pitch and solid command profile. Pitch could play up against left-handed hitters. Average potential offering.

Changeup: 82-83 mph. Advanced feel for offering. Throws with the same arm speed as fastball. Shows drop when turned over down in the zone. Solid-average potential.

Curveball: 76-80 mph. Inconsistent, slurvy offering with two-plane break. Doesn’t consistently snap off and gets caught between a curveball and slider at times. Rolls to the plate at lower velocities. Shows more bite in the upper end of the velocity range. Pitch needs refinement. Below-average potential.

Career Notes: Participated in 2016 Fall Instructional League.

Summation: Ceiling of a left-handed relief specialist. Could move quickly as a college arm with advanced two-pitch mix. Even if he doesn’t reach his ceiling, profiles as a solid organizational arm who could stick around for a while given that he is a left-handed pitcher who could be especially effective against left-handed hitters.
