2/9/20 Pitching
Delivery Notes: Cushman threw from a higher ¾ arm slot with a bit of a crossfire action to his delivery. Showed pretty good athleticism throughout delivery.
Fastball: Fastball was 80-82 mph with average life through the zone.

Pitchability: Cushman showed good athleticism on the mound with average feel for his three pitch mix. Could add some velocity to his fastball if he got more out of his backside and shifted his weight more efficiently in the earlier stages of his delivery.

2/10/19

Body Type: 5-foot-11 197-pound prospect with a medium, somewhat filled out frame.
Swing Mechanics: Starts in a medium, balanced setup. Showed a somewhat flat bat path but still kept his barrel in the zone.
Hit: Good bat to ball ability and barrel control.
Power: 94 mph exit velocity.
Offensive Projection: Showed above average raw power for his class, but his swing lends itself to more of  a line drive, hard ground ball approach. If he added more lift to his swing he could show potential to be a power bat.
Run: 4.58 home to 1st.
Field: In the outfield he showed average footwork but played through the ball well and had a quick arm. In the infield he showed adequate footwork and angles with good hands.
Throw: 75 mph throw across the infield, and 80 mph throw from the outfield.
Defensive Projection: Looks to be more of a corner outfield guy at the next level. Could maybe find a way to contribute at 2B if he wants to keep some versatility at the next level.

Body Type: 5-foot-11 197-pound prospect with an average build. 
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Shows rhythm through a compact delivery with a drop and drive type lower half. Works in line with level shoulders. 
Fastball: 75-77 mph fastball works out of a high-3/4 slot. The pitch is mostly straight working on a downhill plane.
Slider: 68-72 mph slider works on an 11/5 tilt. The pitch flashed some sharpness at times. 
Changeup: 71-73 mph changeup is thrown with fastball like arm speed. Shows good feel, the pitch has some late diving action around the zone. 
Pitchability: Solid three pitch mix from the 2021 grad. Showed ability to locate all three offerings. Breaking is likely the best out pitch at this stage.
Role: TBD.
