Scouting Report  
Dusseldorp checks in at a projectable 6-foot-3; 175 pounds with a lean lanky frame.
Pitching- Quiet delivery for the LHP; ¾ arm slot throwing across his body. Lower body could be more engaged with delivery moving towards home plate. Features a high leg raise with good arm action hiding the ball until his release point. Fastball has good movement sitting at
70-72 mph during NY Games. Change up sat 64-65 mph. Observed in two separate bullpens over the fall; up to 75-76 MPH with a tighter action slider. Continues grow and physically mature. Delivery repeats itself. 

What to Expect 
"Dusseldorp's first event was two years ago when he was 5-foot-11, 137 pounds and touching 68 MPH. Now at 6-foot-3 175 pounds with the same clean delivery we anticipate an easy mid 70's FB or better. Witnessed some bullpens recently where he as just that with improved feel for lateral action slider and change up. Semi-late bloomer from a small town Class D program that will get outs at the next level. With a solid effort, expect him to crack the 2018 rankings."
