Prospect Spotlight

NOTES FROM THE FIELD, INSTRUCTS:

  • Large frame, broad and muscular through upper-half and waist. 
  • Semi-windup, turns away at the top, lands closed and finishes fairly under control. Long, off-line circle; slight recoil after H3/4.
  • FB 92-95; Above-avg velo, blew it by hitters up in the zone. Mixes a runner and a cutter, respectively. 
  • SL 82-85; Big league pitch, took a sharp turn with tough slant to righties. 
  • Control over command type, occasionally hit lower-third but worked mostly over the plate. 

SUMMARY: Former Mets farmhand, was released in July 2018 and caught on with Baltimore as Minor League FA. Looked good during instructs, showing two big league pitches and looking like a 40-Man candidate. See him as palatable middle reliever or longman type.
