7.5.18 - 6-foot-5 200-pound, right-hander presents with a long, athletic frame. Delivery is low effort with loose arm action and is repeated well. Excellent scapular load and shoulder/hip separation are achieved. There is solid balance and rhythm. Fastball sat 89-91 mph touching 92 with late life. Curveball was commanded inconsistently but flashed tight spin, late,sharp break and good depth with 11/4 shape. Splitter at 76-77 remains work in progress. Watter's present velocity, with more in the tank, combined with frame and arm action make him an interesting sleeper in Class of 2019.
