2/12/17 Country strong 6-foot-3, 215-pounder pitches out of a high three-quarter slot. Stable landing with slightly closed front foot and stays on-line to the plate. Fastball sat 84-86 and showed some feel for a change-up at 72-74 with occasional sink. Struggled to get on top of and spin his mid-60s curveball during this bullpen session.

10/29/16 Physical, 6-foot-3, 210-pound righty has a simple, repeatable delivery with a quick arm. On this day his fastball sat 83-84 from a high 3/4 arm slot with arm-side run and some sink. The sophomore's curveball sits 62-64 with 11/5 rotation and shows signs of being an effective pitch if he continues to work on throwing it with better arm speed. Pothering sells his changeup well with fastball arm speed. The pitch sat 72-73 with some arm side run and comes out of the same arm slot as his fastball.

10/8/16 Projectable 6-foot-3, 210-pound primary pitcher sat 83-86 from a high 3/4 arm slot. Showed long arm motion in the back with the ability to get over his front leg with regularity. Commanded fastball down in the zone with some sink. His two-seam fastball sat 81-82 with cut action and his 66 mph curveball displayed 11/5 rotation. A tendency to get around the curveball leads to some sweeping action. The sophomore displayed an advanced feel for his changeup that sat 70-72 with late fade. A combination of his current size and a feel for four pitches makes Pothering a high follow among right-handed pitchers in this class.
