Fastball command, change key to Scottís success (6.12.14)
Scouting Scratch: Portland Arms (7.3.14)

Physical Description: Filled out frame, strong lower half.

Mechanics: Typically throws from a three-quarters arm slot, but will vary arm slot at times depending on the situation and handedness of the hitter. Simple, controlled delivery. High leg kick, motion fades towards first after release.

Fastball: Sits 86-89 mph with heavy arm-side run. Able to take a little off the pitch when he wants to get more movement.

Breaking Ball: Historically has thrown an 11-to-5 curveball that works 71-73 mph with long, two-plane break. Strong feel for the pitch. Added more slurvy action in 2018, with the pitch sitting in the 74-77 mph range.

Changeup: 79-81 mph. Straight changeup that shows late drop. Has solid feel for pitch. Effective against righties when itís on, but can tend to not get enough separation from his fastball at times, making the pitch far less effective. Has become less of a part of his repertoire over time.

Career Notes: Undrafted out of Florida State, played briefly in the North American Baseball League before signing. Pitched minimally out of the bullpen for FSU after transferring from Broward Community College. Indy ball manager was Jose Canseco. Excelled through Double-A and got an extended major league look in 2017. Had left elbow surgery in October 2017. Surprisingly failed to make MLB roster out of camp in 2018, but pitched well in Pawtucket and resumed role as up-and-down reliever.

Summation: Potential low-leverage, up-and-down left-handed specialist. Has had impressive reverse-platoon splits against right-handed hitters during his time in the Majors.
