7/20/14 Molettiere took the mound to begin the event and was the most impressive pitcher to toe the rubber over the course of three days. The 6-foot-2, 165-pound righty has an athletic frame and looseness to his deliver that projects for velocity increases as his frame fills out. Molettiere sat 85-87 with his four seam fastball while also displaying a two seamer at 84 mph with decided arm side run. His 81 mph changeup is improving, but it is his 78 mph slider that has tight, late break that stands out. Molettiere worked four scoreless innings striking out six while allowing three hits. The No. 43 ranked prospect in the PA Class of 2015 committed to Monmouth less than a week following his performance.
5/5/14 Molettiere has a lean frame with plenty of room to add strength. High-3/4 slot with quick arm. 2nd outing back after pre-season injury, worked FB 81-84 with occasional armside bore. Also utilized 77-78 CH and 73-74 CB. Breaking ball wasn't as consistently tight as in the past, but flashed a downer with no bubble in it. Plenty more in there as he works back to full strength.
8/25/13 Molettiere is a 6-foot-2, 160-pound righty that has a big upside. We saw him sitting 86-88 at the PA Underclass Games in July. Molettiere sat 83-85 in his one inning of work out of a 3/4 arm slot with solid arm side run to his fastball. He commanded a 75 mph changeup at fastball arm speed and displayed the makings an out pitch in a 12/6 curveball at 76 mph.
8/3/13 Molettiere sat 81-83, down from his 86-88 velocity that he displayed a week earlier at the PA Underclass Games, but still showed good run and a loose arm action. The 6-foot-2, 160-pound righty also showcased a 74 mph curveball with sharp 12/6 break and a 70 mph changeup thrown at near fastball arm speed. Molettiere induced five ground balls outs and struck out three in his 3.1 innings of work.
7/30/13 Molettiere was one of the most impressive prospects at the event, sitting 86-88 from the mound in game action with some arm side run. The 6-foot-2, 160-pound righty also showcased a two-seamer with even more run at 82-84 along with a 12/6 curveball at 75 mph and a developing 77 mph changeup. A member of the Team PA roster at this year's Midwest Future Games, Molettiere has long levers and has a tremendous upside as he continues to develop and add weight to his frame.
6/19/13 Molettiere impressed during his bullpen session earning himself a spot on the Team Pennsylvania roster for the Midwest Future Games at Indiana University in August. The 6-foot-2, 160-pound prospect is athletic and loose armed. He sat 84-85 with command of a 4-seam fastball and 2-seam fastball mix. His 2-seam fastball has substantial arm-side run and is thrown as hard as his 4-seam. Molettiere also showcased a power 11/5 curveball with late hard bite at 74-76 mph. His 77-79 mph changeup is a pitch that needs further development, but will only add to Molettiere's arsenal when perfected.
