Scouting Scratch: Fall Instructs Part One (9.27.16)

Physical Description: Tall pitcher’s frame with some projection remaining.

Mechanics: Throws from a low three-quarters arm slot starting on the first base side of the rubber. Jerky delivery with effort. Throws across body with inconsistent release point.

Fastball: 92-94 mph. Pitch shows average life.

Curveball: 72-75 mph. Pitch shows 11-5 break. Long, loopy offering that he doesn’t consistently snap off. 

Changeup: 84 mph. Firm pitch with minimal feel. Work in progress.

Slider: 84 mph. Horizontal break.

Career Notes: Participated in 2016 Fall Instructional League.

Summation: Right-hander has a solid pitcher’s frame and fastball velocity. Rest of arsenal needs improvement. Lacks feel for secondary pitches. Will need to show significant improvement to be considered more than a low minors arm.
