Prospect Spotlight

NOTES FROM THE FIELD, INSTRUCTS:

  • Medium frame, broad through shoulders and hips. Well-built throughout, good strength, physically mature.
  • Relief-only delivery: all from the stretch, effort at finish with thwack and recoil. H3/4 to OT slot.
  • FB 93-95; Above-avg velo, consistent mid-90s. Late hop up in the zone, limited lateral movement otherwise.
  • CB 78-80; Tight spin with sharp bite and above-avg depth. Big league curveball. 
  • CH 84-85; Third pitch, but in his mix. Shows it more to lefties, flashes dive action down to armside. 

SUMMARY: Showed interesting three-pitch mix in a quick instructs look, want to see more. Fits middle relief profile.
