Pitch Type Present Grade Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 40 40 84-88 88 Plus command; lacks plane; 4S primarily 86-88 mph and straight; 2S 84-86 with light armside run; both variants lack the necessary movement or velocity to be effective.
CH 30 30 77-80 80 Average command; replicates arm speed; firm offering with mild cut; lacks separation from FB to be effective against better competition.
CB 30 30 70-72 72 Fringe Command; 2-7 rotation; slow breaking with mild depth; telegraphs offering and is easy to recognize out of hand; lacks any projection.
Overall

Squier is a minor league arm that can be used to eat innings in a lower minors rotation and potentially a minor league bullpen at higher levels All three pitches are below average and lack projection, limiting his overall value.

Round Drafted: 2014 16th rd
Why: Plus command of FB and has a workable CH and CB for lower minors. Can eat innings.
