4/10/16, 5/29/16, 6/15/16
Role 4, Swingman/Longman
FB 89-92 T93, some sink; throws lots of strikes, above-average control.
CB 76-80; downer action; 12/6 shape; can get slurvy at times; okay bite; primarily used early in count.
SL 83-85 T86; short cutter action; lacks depth with some tilt; okay bite; lacks consistency and tends to be left in zone.
CH 83-85 T87; fair arm speed; some late fading action; used to both sides but mainly to LHH; spots pitch well on lower half of the zone; effective GB offering.
Ladwig is a strike thrower if there was a definition of one, he has plus control of his arsenal and has okay command of it all. He lacks a knockout offering and can be hittable since he is in the zone so often. Interesting projectable pitcher who could be a usable swingman.
