Scouting Scratch: Low minors arms (3.26.14)

Physical Description: Big body with limited projection. Thick and sturdy. Much heavier than his listed weight. Maxed out physically, will need to maintain his conditioning as he continues maturing.  

Mechanics: High three-quarters arm slot with a complex delivery. Lots of moving parts. Back side collapses before coming forward.  

Fastball: 93-95 mph. Has touched 97 mph in short stints. Quick arm, pitch shows late life. Below average command and control. Shows arm-side run when he pitches downhill.  

Slider: 82-85 mph. Solid-average potential. Doesn’t have great feel for the pitch. Struggles to stay on top of it. Flashes short, late break and tight rotation.  

Summation: Sixth/seventh-inning reliever potential. More of a thrower than a pitcher currently.
