Scouting Report
Has great physical size with broad shoulders from the left-side. Good pace throughout his delivery, arm action is longer and back, throws from an over-the-top slot/ shoulder tilt fastball sat 78-81 mph with some 2-plane action, sink. Curveball rides at 65-69 sometimes slowing down arm, rotation is early with 1/7 shape. Feel for a changeup. Newton has the size and strength to be a force on the mound, with some added arm-strength and a few mechanical adjustments this coming spring could be major.
