Easy thrower; creates velocity without max effort; clean delivery; high 3/4 arm slot; big body leads to stretches of inconsistent balance; front foot will drift; can repeat; frame enables pitcher to create plane.
Portland Sea Dogs (AA, Red Sox)
35 - Up-and-Down Arm
Lively offering, especially when thrown from middle of the thighs and below; shows downward action and occasional late finish; will work to throw to all four quadrants; not overly deceptive; gets hit harder than it should; better spotting glove-side than arm-side; ability to selectively elevate; overthrowing leads to meaty deliveries catching a lot of white; fringe-average present command, with some growth potential; believe offering can tick up out of bullpen.
Big bender; overhand break; flashes good depth; gets soft in lower velocity band; solid separation between fastball; will throw for a strike; willing (and shows confidence) to use at any point of a sequence; liked way pitcher utilized offering; can stand to vary shape and throw for a chase; offering gets boost with progress/learning how to shorten up with more power.
Distant third in arsenal; deliberate when delivery; minimal action; not a lot of confidence when throwing; don't see much future impact with the pitch; best thrown every once and a while as a "show me".
Big bodied two pitch arm; visibly heavier than listed; extra weight shows in loss of fastball gusto after about 60 pitches; likely path is in the bullpen; fastball and curveball have chance to play well together in short bursts; role ticks up with emergence of more of a power breaking ball or curveball taking steps to create chases; see an organization depth arm, with chance to fill a last spot or two in bullpen as needed.
