4/16/23

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Busse is the usual Yellow Jacket closer, but he got the start on Sunday against Virginia Tech. He pitches with a high effort, high intent delivery that starts closed and lands on line. Short, whippy arm action and throws from a low three-quarter arm slot. When watching Busse work it appears as though there is some deception with the arm action, but hitters seemed comfortable in the box and tracked both the fastball and slider well. The fastball sat at 92-94 mph and was at its best getting in on right handed hitters. He was able to create some angle on that pitch and was good when he crowded the left handers. The slider is a 82-83 mph sweeper and was able to get some swings and misses and chases versus right handers. Busse is a high intent, two pitch guy with a short reliever/closer profile.

3/30/23

The strong-built 6-foot-3, 200-pound righthander combines exceptional fastball running life to his armside with high velocity into the mid-90s. After a strong sophomore season at John A Logan JC, (Ill.) Busse took his talents to the MLB Draft League last summer and continued to blossom this fall in Atlanta. He has a short takeaway to a lower slot and his heater simply explodes on hitters. He will also show an above average slider in the low-80s. For the season Busse has thrown 18.1 innings out of the Yellow Jackets’ bullpen. He has recorded four saves with 33 strikeouts while holding opposing hitters to a .162 batting average and 0.98 ERA.

11/15/22

A JUCO transfer from John A. Logan (Ill.), the hard-throwing right-hander always had a good arm. Dropping his release point from high three-quarter to a lower slot produced an explosive fastball sitting 93-94 with a crazy amount of ride and run to go along with an already average slider.

7/15/22

2022 MLB Draft League: Georgia Tech signee; Busse has a promising bullpen profile, as he attacks hitters with a riding 94-96 FB and a pair of swing-and-miss breaking balls, both of which induce whiffs.

5/05/22

JUCO Gems: Pitchers, Vol. 3: Busse is tall with a projectable frame to add strength. The ball comes out of his hand easily, with good arm speed, from a high-three-quarters slot. He throws quality fastballs in the zone, sitting 92-96 with good late tail. Busse’s power curveball, at 81-82 mph, is a sharp downer with nasty late bite, and many that he throws are plus pitches. It’s a legitimate out-pitch for him. Busse repeats his delivery well and throws plenty of strikes. The changeup is a development pitch for Busse, one he’ll need to become a Nos. 3-5 starter at Major League level. He also has value as a premium reliever. Good upside overall.

2/16/19

Six-foot-2, 188 pounds, uses a leg kick from the right side and recorded an exit velocity of 90 mph. Has good frame to fill out to catch. Put up pop times 1.94-2.10 with a good release and a strong arm. Threw 81 mph from behind the plate. On the mound, Terry throws from high ¾ slot and short arm action. There is some arm quickness to his straight fastball that sat 85-87. Showed 12/6 CB at 63-65 and 11/5 slurve at 66-69. Needs to stick to one breaking ball and further develop that pitch. Overall, Terry is a very intriguing guy with his physical tools. A little raw right now but will be interesting to see how he develops.
