Overall Summary
Fedde features the athleticism, arm action and ability to repeat his delivery to have an average future command projection. He has a three-pitch mix with two of them potentially being plus at full maturity. His fastball is in the low-to-middle 90s with downhill plane and arm side sink, making it a groundball offering. Fedde's slider is a swing-and-miss offering with late, sharp break and tilt. He showed feel for his changeup and with his athleticism, arm action and loose wrist, it could potentially play average. Overall, Fedde will need to add strength for durability, and become more consistent in his delivery, to reach his command projection and his ultimate ceiling of a #3 starter.
