Notes from the Field (3.29.17)
Scouting Scratch (08.16.17)

Physical Description: Average athlete with a skinny frame and some remaining projection. Looks taller than his listed 5-foot-11.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Short arm action. Effort in delivery. Generates some deception as he turns his back to the hitter before coming to the plate.

Fastball:
88-90 mph, tops out at 92. Well below-average command and control. Pitch lacks life and struggles to miss bats. Average velocity, but pitch will play down due to lack of command and control.

Changeup: Sits 79-81. Inconsistent, but still his best secondary offering. Shows late drop with deceptive arm speed when he has it working well. Potential fringe-average offering.

Curveball: 75-79 mph. Lacks feel for the pitch. Doesn’t consistently snap the pitch off. Tends to roll to the plate with 1-to-7 shape. Work in progress. Below-average potential.

Summation: Likely will struggle to get out of the low minors without significant development. Still just 20-years old but needs to find a way to throw more strikes and command the ball better within the zone. Fastball command and secondary pitches would have to take a major step forward to project as even a minor league depth arm.
