Overall Summary
Leyer features a big fastball that will get him to the majors as a middle reliever. His command profiles as below average and his breaking ball lacks the consistency required of a high-leverage reliever. Leyer throws a changeup but hasn't used it often in my viewings. It has some fade but its a firm change that sits in the 84-to-87 range.
