Future Games

6-foot-4 185-pound right-handed pitcher. The fastball sat 80-81 mph and downhill at times. The spin pitch is a slider at 72-74 mph, solid in shape and depth. The changeup is a developing pitch. The delivery is online and the slot is above 3/4 in height. The lift is repeated, small amount of forward lean and minimal glove pull. The tracking of the front shoulder needs to stay online longer to improve his extension to the plate. The extension is where his velocity is. The frame is outstanding as he can fill out and get stronger. His best days are in front of him

7/01/20

6-foot-4, 185-pound, long, skinny athletic frame, with plenty of room for added weight and strength gains. A right-handed pitcher, having tempo and timing to the hands, working with his smooth higher leg kick. Loads up on backside, weight over back foot, direction is inline, squaring up to home plate. The arm action is clean on the back, working out of a higher slot, gets out front on the finish uses the entire body to pitch the baseball.  The fastball touched 83 mph, down in the zone, with good sink, creating ground balls with weak contact. Threw the slider at 74 mph, late breaker, with depth, its hard, chance to be a legit swing and miss pitch. Showing feel for the change as well. Look for an accelerated jump at some point.

3/08/20

6-foot-4, 200-pound, strong athletic frame, well proportioned, strength throughout. The back is wide, going to be very physical at some point. A right-handed pitcher, pounded the zone with a heavy two-pitch mix, also mixed in a changeup as well. The delivery is repeatable, has tempo and timing to it. Builds momentum down the mound, pitching downhill, gets out front on release with good extension. Stays over the rubber, landing inline, arm action is longer, quick and clean on the backside, working from a higher 3/4 slot. The fastball was located to both sides, 4-seamer getting through the catcher, with 2-seamer having minimal arm side run. Consistently sat at 83 mph for this outing. The slider is a legit out pitch, late break, thrown hard at 75 mph, big time swing and miss offering. The changeup is still a work in progress, is thrown with proper velocity off fastball, at 75-76 mph. Big time arm, need to see him.
