Two-Way Tuesday: 2022 LHP/1B Gavin Faulkner
May 12, 2020
6-foot-1, 165 pound LHP/1B with lanky frame and plenty of room to fill out. Good upside. Long arm action, high-3/4 slot. Shows feel for 3 pitches. Works the lower half of the zone fairly consistently. Projects to command. Fastball shows occasional ASR at 77-79, T80. Curveball at 67-69 mph has good spin, sharp downer action at it's best. Feel for 70-73 changeup. One to watch for velocity gains.
Right-handed hitter. Starts slightly open and initiates swing with a leg kick. Gets barrel on plane producing a lot of line drive contact. Uses all fields. Projectable gap power. Ran 7.31 laser-tied 60 yard dash. Shows bat speed, 88 mph exit velocity off the tee. Solid defender at first base. Moves athletically. Strong/accurate throws.
