Scouting Report

1/12/20

 

5-foot-9, 154-pound slim frame. Projects to add. On
the mound, he had quick arm speed and a high ¾ slot. He is an up-tempo type pitcher and
uses normal effort. Has even shoulders and an athletic balance point off the mound. Lands soft
with an athletic finish. Clocked sitting at 83-84
mph T85. Curveball showed hard late 11/5 action (70-72 mph) and showed the most depth when located down in the zone. Locates his later-breaking slider (72-74 mph) well when he
stays on top. His changeup (76-76) showed fading action and low in the zone command.
Chaudoin's quick arm and command of four pitches makes him a high follow in the 2022 class.
