5/2/18 -�Durable built, three-pitch lefty. Throws from a high three-quarters slot with a deep, plunging arm action on the backside. Overcomes his less than ideal arm action to consistently throw strikes to both sides of the plate. Lands on-line with a soft mid-foot plant, showing very good balance throughout his delivery. Uses his lower half well and has good extension out front. Shoulder tilt, a short pause at balance point and his arm action all add deception to his delivery. Fastball ranged from 90-93 mph early in the game, falling to 88-91 during the later innings of his five and one-third inning, 108 pitch outing. Threw his above average changeup with fastball arm speed early and often to both left-handed and right-handed hitters at 77-81 mph. Routinely doubled and tripled up with the pitch. Generated some swing/miss. Curveball showed average early, ranging from 75-79 mph with good shape and average depth. Lost some effectiveness and velocity, falling to 71-74 during the last two innings. Occasionally his arm action didn’t allow him to get on top of the ball, but overall the pitch was much improved from what I saw last summer in the Cape Cod All-Star game. The addition of this pitch to his arsenal has enabled him to improve his performance, allowing less hits (6.2/per 9 IP) and less walks (2.85/9) with more strikeouts (9.73/9) compared to last spring. As a college lefty who posts every weekend and performs to the level of his stuff, he has a high floor and is a lower risk pick. Profiling as a back end starter, look for Bubic to be drafted on Day 1.

4/11/18 -�6’3/220, Junior. While Bubic enjoyed a three run lead before stepping to the mound, and multiple big innings of Stanford offense, he also dealt with long periods of time spent on the bench. Though he showed flashes of command of the fastball to his glove side, the long breaks between innings didn’t allow him to get comfortable, and he struggled to find a rhythm throughout. The big left-hander has a physical, workhorse-frame, and certainly looks the part, physically, of a pitcher who can eat up innings in professional baseball. He sat 87-91 mph with his fastball out of a high � slot, touching 92 mph on a handful of occasions, and appearing to have more in the tank. His delivery is Kershaw-esque as he throws his glove out toward the plate, sticking it, as his lead leg works down and out. He features more of a scap-pinch with a loose, quick arm. He had trouble putting hitters away, lacking feel for his breaking ball which took 2/8 shape at 74-77 mph. He did throw a couple that flashed some tilt, but, for the most part, did not have much feel for the pitch. Bubic relied heavily on his changeup, which showed more fading action than sink at 78-81 mph. He was not afraid to throw it back to back and even three times in a row. Overall, Bubic’s inability to get into a rhythm and finish off hitters and keep them off balance drove his pitch count up to 95 in the fifth inning when he came out having given up five earned runs on seven hits with two hit batters and four strikeouts.
