The Write-Up: Allen, Lakins, Cuevas... (10.5.15)
2015 Top 40 Season in Review
Notes from the Field: Day One (3.17.16)

Physical Description: Athletic. Skinny. Room for added strength.

Mechanics: Repeatable delivery. Glove sets tucked on left side of chest and meets right hand just above the belt as he pivots into delivery. Short arm action in back, hides the ball well. Three-quarters arm slot with quick arm. Stays on line to the plate.

Fastball: 91-93 mph; most 92-93 mph. Tops out at 95 mph. Occasional arm-side run when down in the zone. Doesn't have great life. Needs to improve command and control down in the zone. Could add a tick or two to velocity with physical maturity. Potential plus offering, but plays below that due to lack of life and consistent movement.

Curveball: 75-76 mph with tight rotation and two-plane break. Future potential above-average offering with bat-missing ability.

Changeup: 83-86 mph with late dive away from left-handed hitters. Locates well down in the zone and shows great feel. Potential average offering with consistency.

Summation: Flashes three potential at least average offerings, but lacks consistency. Lean, undersized frame currently profiles best as a reliever. Has room for added strength and could add a tick or two on the fastball as a result. Physical maturity and consistency of arsenal over extended innings will give a chance to stick in the rotation. Overall consistency of arsenal and fastball command and control will be keys going forward.
