2013 Top 40 Season in Review

Scouting Report:  Left-hander with an excellent frame, but needs to add strength. Loose thrower with low energy when expending delivery from 3/4 arm slot. Possesses a 88-92 mph fastball with late tail. Has shown higher velocity, but inconsistent from outing to outing. Should eventually settle into the 90-92 mph range, but usually works in the 88-91 mph range. Improved control as he's progressed through the organization, but command is still fringe-average. Still needs to fine tune command and pitchability. 74-76 mph curveball shows deep break and hard bite, but has been hesitant to throw it because of the success he has had with his slower curve. Finishes the pitch well to create consistent snap. Commands offering well, with ability to throw for strikes. Plus-to-better potential. Also throws his curve slower at 68-72 mph to pick up strikes. Loose and on the loopy side. 76-79 mph changeup grades as plus-plus, having improved quite a bit in his early years. Feels pitch well, but can leave it up in the zone where it tends to float. Needs work finishing consistently. Deceptive delivery. Hides fastball well in motion causing it to jump on opposing hitters. Mature demeanor on mound. Needs to put on weight to handle rigors of starting as a professional and build stamina to hold stuff deep into games. Ceiling of  a high end third starter on a first-division team. Floor of a back of the rotation starter.
