Haley uses fastball, mental fortitude (3.22.14)
2014 Top 40 Season in Review
The Write-Up: More from the Fort (3.23.15)
With new delivery honed, Haley looks to build... (3.29.15)

Physical Description: Tall, strong pitcher's build. Strong lower half. Close to maxed out physically.

Mechanics: Throws from a high three-quarters arm slot. Stiff, vertical delivery. Starts with a wide base and pushes off the third base side of the rubber. Long arm action with a point and stab when his arm is behind his body. Minimal deception in his delivery. Front shoulder has a tendency to open up early with his arm dragging behind.

Fastball:
90-93 mph. Tops out at 95 mph. Late downward action when he pitches downhill. Pitch jumps on hitters. Below-average command, but has shown the ability at times to locate to both sides of the plate when he wants. Manipulates the pitch at times, adding cut or sink. Solid-average potential.

Changeup:
80-82 mph. Flashes drop and fade. Shown solid feel for the offering. Fringe-average-to-average potential.

Breaking ball:
Has thrown both a slider and curveball in the past. Both have fringe-average potential. Slider flashes bite and bat-missing ability. Can throw for strikes or bury down and out of the zone when looking to waste a pitch. Only shown the curveball in his outings in 2015. 75-77 mph. Pitch is loose and tends to roll to the plate. Longer break at lower velocities and shorter vertical break at higher. Below-average offering at present.

Summation:
Ceiling of number five starter or swingman type. Profiles as a likely up and down depth arm. Rough mechanics and lack of true plus offering limit likelihood of reaching ceiling. Solid pitchability. Stuff could play up in bullpen role.
