Scouting Report

2/02/22

After nearly two years off the mound, the 6-foot-6, 225-pound Bybee made his return in a couple short, controlled fall outings. He showed an upper-80s to low-90s fastball for consistent strikes and a slider with consistent shape and late depth. The Super 60 will be the first look for many at the right-hander tuned up and at full speed.
