Scouting Scratch (8.25.16)
Notes from the Field (3.22.17)
After initial stumble, Anderson settling in (4.13.17)
Trade Analysis: Scouting the prospects dealt for Eduardo Nunez (7.26.2017)

Traded to San Francisco with Gregory Santos for Eduardo Nunez (July 2017)

Physical Description: Prototypical pitcher’s frame, looks listed size of 6-foot-5, 225 pounds. Athletic. Some projection remaining, especially in his lower half. Has the build to be able to withstand a starting pitcher’s workload.

Mechanics: Throws from a high three-quarters arm slot from the third base side of the rubber. Controlled, repeatable delivery with clean arm action. Uses a medium leg kick and has short arm action behind. Rocks slightly towards third base before coming forward. 

Fastball: 90-92 mph, tops out at 94 mph. Solid control, but command needs refinement. Around the strike zone to the point where he will throw too many strikes at times. Fastball will show some sink and natural cut when down in the zone, but straightens out and is hittable up in the zone.

Cutter: 87-89 mph. Sharp, horizontal movement. Has confidence in pitch. Does a good job keeping it down and eliciting weak contact.

Slider: 83-86 mph. Two-plane movement. On the sweepy side at lower velocities, looks like a cutter at higher velocities.

Curveball: 77-78 mph. 12-to-6 break. Can spin it and show good rotation and depth.

Changeup:  81-83 mph. Shows feel for offering. Fades and is tough to pick up.

Career Notes: Worked out of the bullpen in college as part of incredibly deep Florida staff, serving as the closer his junior season, before transitioning to a starter as a professional. Would likely have started for most other collegiate programs. Participated in 2016 Fall Instructional League.

Summation: Tall right-hander has a four-pitch mix, solid pitcher’s frame and clean mechanics. Could move quickly in a bullpen role, but will be stretched out and developed as a starter. Lacks a true plus offering, but could have several average-to-better offerings. Strong command profile and pitchability. Ceiling of a back-end starter who relies on mixing pitches and being around the zone because of lack of true out pitch.
