SCOUTING REPORT

PBR Future Games 8/1/18

Durable frame with room to shape at 6-foot-2, 230-pounds. Compact controlled build up style delivery. Average leg kick while working down to out gliding downhill. Get some hip load with weight back and gets nice lower half involvement working down-hill and some backside drive. Has a longer arm action with slight pause after break. Whippy, fast arm speed throwing from a high three quarter. Fastball shows natural run to the pitch up to 88 mph. Breaking ball has depth on the pitch with a bigger 1/7 action. Good pitch that hitters struggled handling. Change up showed later dive on the pitch and looks to have potential as a solid third pitch. Did not throw in game, only in warm ups. Ward had one of the more impressive outings for Team Mid-Atlantic during the Future Games, controlling a Florida lineup for his two innings on the bump. One of the high risers of the event from the team.
