2/10/19 Pitching

Body Type: Only a freshman. Has some size and strength to his frame at 5-foot-11, 225-pounds.

Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Throws with short arm action through over the top slot. Big leg kick. Maintains direction and momentum towards the plate.

Fastball: Ticked up to 78 mph, mostly sitting 75-76 mph. Occasional arm side run.

Curveball: Sat 65-66 mph. Tendency to slow his arm down. Not as tight break as his slider but located in the zone.

Slider: Best off-speed offering. Sharper 11/5 break at 66-69 mph. Good hand speed to the pitch.

Changeup: Mostly straight at 70 mph. In the zone, but not an effective pitch at this stage.

Summary: Solid foundation for his age. Showed glimpses of above average velocity for a freshman as well as an above average breaking ball with his slider. Interesting follow as he firms up his body and continues to improve his mechanics.
