Notes

3/19/22

Kutz is a unique player in his own right, as he currently stands at 6-foot-6, 200-pounds with long, lanky limbs that ooze upside. He’s pretty good under center as well, owning a formidable reputation as a signal caller for the Orioles that’s starting to get some Division I buzz on the gridiron. Kutz reached back for an 88 mph high on his fastball, sitting in the 84-88 mph range with above-average spin rates to pair (2,460 RPM average). Kutz averaged nearly 18 inches of horizontal action on his slider - a pitch that played in the low-70s and can be a true swing-and-miss offering should an uptick in velocity take place. Few possess the upside on the mound that he does, so we’re eager to see Kutz build off this momentum into the spring and summer. 

3/07/21

Kutz has made some slight alterations to his arm action and delivery, which has helped him sync up his extra-long levers with a little more regularity, resulting in increased velocity. The 6-foot-6, 190-pound righty was up to 86 mph on Sunday with his fastball that features big spin, especially for his age, measured at 2,335 rpm on average. The pitch carries and runs at above-average rates, too, making it capable of becoming an out-pitch on its own long-term. The offspeed feel is raw, but he’s able to spin the breaking ball, and as a good athlete for his huge frame, Kutz seems capable of making the adjustments he’ll need to enhance his arsenal over time.
