BROGAN BECKNER / LHP / OF / DOBYNS BENNETT , TN / 2019

Max FB: 89, FB: 83-88, Avg FB: 85.42, CB: 67-70
6-foot-4, 185-pound, LHP showed ability to pitch at 85-88, touching 89, but had to back off velocity wise to get in the strike zone on this day.  Prototypical pitcher build, long and lanky w/ some present lower half strength, super projectable.  Pitches from a full wind-up into over the top release from the third base side of the rubber.  Throws slightly across his body w/ ultra-quick arm.  Has made a velo jump since we last saw him, learning how to use his lower half to get a consistently faster arm on time.  Clean delivery.  Downhill plane w/ angle.  Straight FB shows occasional short arm-side run.  Tight medium downer CB flashes proper shape and rotation.  Got better as the outing went on.  Sprayed the zone on this day, repeatable delivery and consistent arm-slot suggest consistent strikes are coming.  Generated 6 swing and misses on 12 swings, including 6 of 11 on his FB.
