Scouting Scratch: Late-round 2017 draftees (8.28.17)
Scouting Scratch: Quick-hitters from Lowell (9.11.17)

Physical Description: Average frame with minimal remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Controlled, minimal-effort delivery. High leg kick with a short stab behind.

Fastball: 89-92 mph. Shows sink, but lacks life. Throws strikes, but command is inconsistent.

Curveball: 77-80 mph. Short, vertical break. Lacks depth.

Slider: 83-86 mph. Short, 10-to-4 break.

Changeup: 81-84 mph. Late, downward movement. Firm offering. Does not use as often as his breaking pitches.

Career Notes: Started in college, but moved to a long relief role in pro ball.

Summation: Projects as a low minors depth arm. Can throw all four of his pitches for strikes, but lacks an above-average offering. Ability to throw strikes and work in long relief could be useful as a back end bullpen arm in the low minors.
