VA/DC Scout Blog

Sipe has a lanky 6-foot-1 frame with projection left to it. Short outing on the night for the left hander, as he came on in relief for Dean. Hips and shoulders closed moving down the mound. Lands closed and has some crossfire to the delivery. The arm swing is full and throws from a low three-quarter arm slot. The fastball stayed between 76-79 and touched 80 once. The breaking ball sat 69-71 and has some gradual 1/7 break on it. The breaking ball appears to be a tough look from both sides if he cant start it in the right place. The horizontal break on it can get some bad swings and bad contact, but it all depends upon zone placement. Sipe worked three at bats to full counts and lost all of them to walks. He did not allow a hit in his one inning of work and got a ground ball that could have been an inning ending double play if not for an infield error.

Sipe is 6-1 with an athletic frame that has strength present in the lower half and some projection left to it. In the infield, rounds the ball and fields with a wider base and above average hands, works through ball to a clean exchange, throws from a high three-quarters arm slot, short arm action position velocity was 76. On the mound, he throws from a low three-quarters arm slot, very short loose quick arm action and some effort to his delivery. Crossfire delivery, shoulders are level and closed, lands closed with a fall off finish and hard recoil. Fastball was 78-80, touching 81, pitch has a tough angle and  some late armside run with a bit of sink. Curveball had good armspeed and was 68-71 with gradual 2/8 break to it, pitch has some shape and should tighten into a good one, pairs well with his fastball.
