Scouting Scratch (7.3.13)
Description: Filled-out, sturdy pitcher’s frame. Looks listed
height and weight. Minimal projection.
Throws directly over the top from the first base side. Jerky delivery with
a lot of effort. Starts closed and uses a high leg kick. Lands stiff on
front side with recoil. Poor posture in delivery.
91-93 mph. Tops out at 95 mph. Straight. Average life, some sink when down
in the zone. Throws strikes, around the plate. Above-average potential.
Splitter: 82-84 mph. Late tumble and drop. Has shown
bat-missing potential. Solid feel. Average potential.
Slider: 80-82 mph. Short, vertical break. Below-average
Summation: Projects as an
organizational arm. Fastball/splitter combination is intriguing, but lacks
consistency from outing to outing.
