BAWS 2019 - Pettey is a long frame with solid strength and a high waist showing the type of body that stands out on the hill. The lefty showed three pitches that project some growth with the frame being able to project more strength as he matures. Pettey started Game 4 and went right after hitters with all three pitches and a delivery that allows him to drive the hill with the back leg creating some extension out front. The FB (83-85 T86 MPH) shows controlled arm side run and bouts of angle that way as well. He used the pitch to freeze hitters and induce weak popups. The CB (68-72 MPH) was able to be manipulated with a blend from a true 12/6 shape to a sweeping 1/8 shape that would also freeze hitters and miss barrels. The CHG (74-77 MPH) was firm with actions on both sides of the plate as it fades and cuts off a FB look. Pettey has the chance to keep improving the release point of all his pitches for more consistent command, but the stuff was strong with life occurring late at the plate. 6-3, 190lb LHPs are hard to find and when they’ve still got some projection they end up highly sought after

8/25/18 - 6-foot-2, 170-pounds, strong well-proportioned body type, good looking frame on a rising junior. Good hips and shoulders. Offensively has talent as well. Tall set-up, starts with open stance, line drive middle/opposite field approach with some strength and power potential. Twice squared it up in his game at-bats, both to the pull side. Stays behind the ball well, nice wide base with good balance and creates leverage with his lower body. Defensively bounced around well, confident and strong arm, works the bag well, good athlete at 1st base. Good all-around player, given his present velocity on mound he might be viewed as more of a position player but if/when the velocity spikes he will be seen well as a pitcher too. High-3/4 slot, easy arm action and gets good length at release point. Uses lower body well in delivery with good stability that provides a repeatable release point. Long arm action and hides the ball well. Good direction and good finish. Pettey was a pitch-maker in this outing. Fastball with life and control, good feel of the curveball with late bite and good shape, tough pitch on left-handed hitters. Athlete on the mound and a good slide step.
