Scouting Notes of Sullivan
Chris Sullivan, RHP/1B, Oswego HS, NY (2015)
Sullivan stands 6-foot-1, 205-pounds with a strong body build. On the mound he uses a long arm action to a high 3/4 slot. Fastball sits 78-81 with cutter movement almost every pitch, very late action. 11/5 shape to his curveball and falls off to the first base side. More balance through his delivery and more extension over his front knee will help greatly. A serious arm strengthening program would be great as a few added ticks to his fastball would make him extremely dangerous. 1B/Hitting - From the corner he moves quick around the bag evidenced by his 6.96 60 yard time. Fielding position is sound, transfer to release is slow, throws from a high-3/4 slot at 75 mph arm strength. At the plate his setup is wide and tall. On the pitch he uses a stride, hips slide forward and open, path is short to the ball, bat plane is level through contact. He uses a shoulder height finish, exit velocity was 90 mph off a tee showing above average power potential.

Analysis:
Sullivan has the size, speed, and power to peak the interest of next level programs. At 6-foot-1, 205-pounds his 6.96 60 time is quite impressive. His 90 mph bat speed much the same, showing pull power in BP with explosive hands to the ball. From the mound he shows maybe his most upside of all. His fastball is upper 70's, low 80's but with natural cut on every pitch. If he takes an arm strengthening program serious this winter, his ceiling on the mound is high. Look forward to seeing him this spring in action.
