Scouting Scratch (4.19.17)

Retired (Jan. 2020)

Physical Description: Sturdy, filled out pitchers frame. Thick lower body. Minimal remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a high three-quarters arm slot on the third base side of the rubber. Delivery and arm action work. Short arm action, keeps the ball hidden until late. Quick arm.

Fastball: 95-97 mph four-seamer. Pitch has arm-side run and late life. Above-average control, average command. Potential plus offering.

Changeup: 84-86 mph. Throws with deceptive arm speed. Shows late drop. Looks like a splitter at times when it falls off the table late. Solid-average potential.

Slider: 84-86 mph. Short, vertical break. Doesn’t feature consistently. Fringe-average potential. Clear third pitch.

Career Notes: Was a two-way player at Florida who moved to pitching full-time as a professional. Moved to the bullpen full-time early in his first full season. Missed significant portions of both the 2014 and 2015 seasons for off-field reasons. Missed extended time in 2018 with right shoulder inflamation. Had right shoulder rotator cuff surgery in September 2018 and missed the 2019 season. 

Summation: Projects as a middle reliever. Lacks a plus out pitch to profile in a late inning role. Fastball/changeup combination along with above-average control give him high floor. Throws strikes, usually around the zone. Injury history clouds his future.
