Notes

6/28/22

The biggest winner on the mound from last Tuesday’s event was RHP Tom Ford (Lisle, 2024). Standing at a lanky 6-foot-6, 185-pounds, Ford has plenty of room to fill out his high-waisted and projectable frame. His delivery is simple, pitching exclusively out of the stretch with a drop/drive lower-half, remaining in-line to the plate throughout his stride. His arm works loose and quick with a long arm circle out of the glove, transitioning into a high ¾ slot. The tall right-hander worked primarily in the 86-89 mph range, but reached back for 90-91 mph on his last couple bullets while playing with life at the top of the zone. His curveball looked to be his best off-speed offering on this day, playing with sharp 11/5 shape and downward action, also tunneling off his fastballs effectively while locating down under the zone, 68-70 mph. He went to a slider for his third offering, pulling off to his glove-side at times but flashing sharp 10/4 bullet action, 73-76 mph. Having seen Ford up to 88 mph this past winter, his three mph jump is no surprise as he has started to control his body down the mound more consistently. 

2/26/22

Positional Profile: RHP/1B
Body: 6-5, 190-pounds. Long, lanky build. Projectable.
Delivery: Pitched exclusively from the stretch, slow paced leg lift. Up-tempo delivery from balance point, slight drop and drive lower half while remaining in line.
Arm Action: RH. Long arm swing. Loose arm action, high 3/4 slot.
FB: T87.1, 83.5-86.1 mph. Straight four seam fastball. T2471, 2337 average rpm.
SL: 72.7-75.5 mph. Hard slider, 10/4 shape, darting late lateral action. T2274, 2236 average rpm.
CH: 77.2-78.4 mph. Straight change, occasional arm side fade. T2180, 2068 average rpm.
