Austin Gomber Born: 11/23/1993 (Age: 22)
Height: 6' 5"
Big body at 6-foot-5, 235 pounds; High-three-quarters arm slot; high-effort delivery; quick to plate,; clean foot strike; almost a tiny hitch before delivery; rides down mound well and creates good downhill plane.
Palm Beach Cardinals (High A, Cardinals)
50; back-end starter/middle reliever
Good command; throws a lot of strikes; can hit all four quadrants of zone; fastball has some sink to it; with his size he might even add to his FB velo.
1-7 break; good spin; throws for strikes; has above-average control; could be a good out pitch with some work.
Has excellent control and confidence in pitch; although it's his third pitch, he will rely on it more if the curveball isn't working; not afraid to throw when behind in the count.
Gomber is your typical Cardinal organizational pitcher. He's a solid pitcher who just throws strikes and has good command of all three pitches. Solid chance to be a back of the rotation guy.
