Scouting Scratch: Late-round 2017 draftees (8.28.17)

Physical Description: Undersized with no remaining physical projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Simple, repeatable delivery with short arm action. Likes to work quickly.

Fastball: 84-87 mph, tops out at 88 MPH. Throws strikes and is able to consistently keep the ball down. The offering has sink, resulting in a lot contact.

Changeup: 79-81 mph. Feel and confidence in offering. Deceptive arm speed and late drop. Best secondary.

Slider: 80-82 mph with 10-to-4 shape. Short, lacks depth.

Career Notes: Undrafted free agent who had no plans to play baseball at the professional level prior to a standout performance in the NCAA Tournament for Davidson. Was originally planning to attend pharmacy school after College.

Summation: Projects as a useful back end minor league depth arm. Stuff doesn’t standout, but knows how to pitch and throws strikes. Should be able to provide serviceable innings at any level in the low minors for as long as he wants to continue in pro ball. Was already called up to High-A when they needed a starter during the 2017 season, jumping directly from Lowell.
