Notes from the Field (4.23.18)
Scouting Scratch (10.18.2018)

 

Physical Description: Athletic right-hander with some remaining projection. Looks listed 6-foot-1, 180 pounds.

Mechanics: Throws from a high three-quarters arm slot. Long arm action with a lot of moving parts. Recoils when falling off the mound.

Fastball: 90-93 mph. Tops out at 95 mph. Will come out 92-94 mph, but velocity drops off quickly in game and by the third inning is mostly 90-91 mph. Pitch show arm side run. Command and control has a very long way to go. Well below-average at present. Struggles to locate, more of a thrower at this point. Needs to be more consistent holding velocity.

Slider: 84-86 mph. Short, shape varies. Some more vertical, others more horizontal. Lacks feel, slows delivery. Potential below-average offering.

Splitter: 86-88 mph. Late drop at times. Potential average offering.

Career Notes: Participated in the 2018 Fall Instructional League.

Summation: Signed late as a 20 year old. Raw at present, but will show arm strength and quick arm. Delivery lacks fluidity and secondary pitches need a lot of work. Due to late start, looks destined for a bullpen role long-term. Command and control need to make significant progress to get out of the low minors.
