Notes from the Field (3.17.16)
off waivers by Philadelphia (Dec. 2019)
Description: Average frame, minimal projection. Athletic, moves
Mechanics: Starts on the third base side of
the rubber and throws sidearm. Effort in delivery, harsh arm action.
Average arm speed. Deceptive against right-handed hitters due to arm slot.
Fastball: 86-88 mph. Tops out at 89 mph. Pitch shows
natural sink. Advanced command and control. Always around the strike zone,
rarely walks hitters. Keeps the ball down. Below-average potential.
Slider: 75-77 mph. Slurvy breaking ball that lacks
tilt. Sweepy, horizontal movement. Average potential.
Career Notes: One of the NCAA leaders in appearances during the
2015 season at the University of North Carolina.
Projects as a minor league relief arm. Arm slot is especially tough on
right-handers, but stuff is below-average, limiting upside. Doesn’t have a
pitch to get left-handed hitters out consistently. Because of command and
control profile and deception, should serve as a solid organizational arm.
