Scouting Scratch: Notes from the backfields (3.19.15)

Released (Dec. 2015)

 

Scouting Report: Big, solid pitcher’s frame with some remaining projection. Long levers; a lot of moving parts in his delivery. Throws from the first base side using a three-quarters arm slot. Quick to the plate. Long arm action, loops all the way around and shows the ball behind. Fastball generally sits 90-92 mph, but has topped out at 94 mph in the past. Tends to lose velocity as he gets into his second and third innings of work. 74-76 mph, 11-to-5 curveball is inconsistent, but will flash depth and two-plane break. Pitch is generally on the loose side and rolls to the plate. Lacks finish and will slow body on occasion. Nunez was a highly regarded prospect coming out of high school, and flashed good stuff but a lack of control during his freshman season at Southern Miss. In 2013, he suffered a major arm injury that caused him to miss most of the season.
