6/24/21

Pitched five strong against a quality lineup, featuring some of the day’s most electric stuff. Swartz lived in the 88-89 mph range, reaching 90-91 at times, with premium arm speed he also applied to his breaking ball, 77-79 mph, a slider-like offering with short, late action that earned some ugly swings and misses under the zone – though he also landed a handful in the zone to catch batters looking as well.

Arm plays long on back side, live and loose out front, super quick for classification, over the top slot, some effort. Showed three pitch potential. Fastball, mostly straight, flashed slight run, easy out of the hand, sat 81-84 mph. Curveball has wipeout potential, sharp 12/6 bite with arm speed and conviction, 69-73 mph.
