  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Tall, skinny pitcher’s frame. Needs to fill out considerably and has room to add muscle.

Mechanics: High three-quarters arm slot. Below-average athlete with limited coordination. High leg kick. Stiff delivery with considerable effort. Upper and lower body do not remain in sync during delivery. Struggles to repeat his delivery. Struggles to find a consistent slot and arm will drag behind rest of his delivery. Could get more extension. Crossfire release. Small hitch on follow-through post-delivery.

Fastball: 87-91 mph. Tops out at 93 mph. Could add more velocity as he physically matures. Pitch shows natural cut due to his crossfire delivery. Uses his height well, but command and control need work. Really struggles to locate glove-side and maintain velocity from the stretch.

Curveball: 76-78 mph. 12-to-6 shape. On the loose side and lacks depth. Does not consistently snap it off and has a tendency to yank it into the dirt. Needs to develop better feel for the pitch. Work in progress, but will flash average potential.
  Changeup: 80-82 mph. Lacks feel, still a work in progress. At its best, will show some late movement.

Career Notes: Son of former minor league pitcher Scott Loubier. Committed to Wake Forest. Signed for well above slot. Participated in Fall Instructional League in 2019 and 2020.

Summation: Has good size, but stuff and feel have a long way to go developmentally. All about projection at this point. Needs to fill out and improve in all aspects of his game. Refining mechanics and finding a consistent delivery will be key to kickstarting his development in the low minors.

Note: This page will be updated with a complete scouting report after the scouting team has seen the player in game action.
