Scouting Report

7/12/17 5-foot-9, 135-pound left handed pitcher.  Showed considerable arm quickness with FB sitting 80-82 and touching 85.  There was subsantial arm side run and sink to FB.  CB sat 63-66 with 10-8 shape and, at its best, late sharp break.  Slider was thrown at 68-71 mph with short, slow break.  Delivery was repeated and Hodges demonstrated ability to stay in line with good balance.  There was some front knee softness following foot plant resulting in elbow drop and difficulty staying on top/behind baseball.
