Prospect Spotlight

NOTES FROM THE FIELD, INSTRUCTS:

  • Large frame, broad and muscular features, durable build. Surprisingly quick feet on pickoff move to 1B.
  • Stretch only, high-effort operation, headsnap and recoil after 3/4 slot. Inverted-W in the back, off-line circle.
  • FB 92-94; Low slot gives long natural run. Flashed late dart that gets off the barrel, induces lots of ground ball contact.
  • SL 82-84; True slider with flashes of average action. Got short at times and had fringy depth. 
  • CH 87-88; Third pitch, less feel than FB/SL, shows more to lefties. Projects as a wrinkle.
  • Pitches heavily off FB and can come over the plate because of its heavy life. Knows how to get contact outs. 

SUMMARY: Ceiling of a sinker/slider RHR who keeps the ball on the ground and faces mostly righties.
