Prospect Spotlight

NOTES FROM THE FIELD, MINOR LEAGUE SPRING TRAINING:

  • Undersized w/ lean features; young look, room to add strength but won’t ever be physical. Good athlete, twitchy features, fast arm.
  • Simple mechanics w/ effort through release. Quick H3/4 slot; head rattle and recoil at finish. 
  • FB 92-96; Quick arm produces lively mid-90s velo; late burst and run to armside; will need to get stronger and tone down delivery to sharpen in-zone command. 
  • CB 79-81; Separator, potential big league breaking ball; tight rotation, flashes of sharp bite and two-plane depth. Good looking pitch. 
  • CH 84-85; Throws more to LHH, developing third speed. Slight fade to armside. 
  • FB/CB two primary pitches, CH a wrinkle. Around the plate w/ more control than true command. 

SUMMARY: Young RHP w/ mid-90s velocity and flashes of sharp CB. Will need to add durability and overall polish to wind up a big league SP. Interesting tools, can’t rule out the ‘pen given shorter stature and quality two-pitch mix.
