4.1.16:  Rader has a strong frame and throws from a three-quarters arm slot with a smooth delivery. He has a short, quick arm action and generates velocity with some effort. His shoulders are closed, slightly uphill as he strides out to a square landing with a recoil. His fastball sat 80-83 with slight run to it. Rader’s changeup had heavy fade, running 73-75. He threw a late 1/7 curveball, running 67-71.
3.19.15:  Threw 3 innings on a controlled pitch count, allowing no runs and striking out 5 with only 1 walk. Rader has an athletic frame and throws from a three-quarters slot with a smooth, explosive delivery. He has closed shoulders that create deception and stays online. His arm action is short but the ball explodes out of his hand after a lightning fast armstroke. Rader sat 86-87 with his fastball in the first inning, working the top of the zone early before settling in with good command, especially to his glove side of the plate. He sat 84-85 in his second and third innings of work. Rader did not throw a breaking pitch in the outing, but threw a few change-ups in the 73-76 range that flashed plus when he threw them with full armspeed, generating hard late sink and run.
