Fastball 30 40 90 92 Sinks to both side of the plate, controls it down, occasional out pitch at corners, inconsistent command, can get flat

Command - 30/40
Control - 40/50
Slider 40 50 78 80 Tight sweeper, 2-7 movement, tough track, can generate swings & misses even in obvious counts, throws to both sides, flashes as an out pitch, comfort backfooting it to righties and taking it down and away to lefties; below-average command and control

Control - 30/40
Overall

Zamora creates a solid angle to the plate and deception, with a sweeping, sharp slider flashing as a quality pitch that he can sweet with reasonable consistency to the glove side. Hitters often start and stop their swing too late, or miss badly. This puts him in consideration for middle relief, but the fastball is below-average in both command and movement, and the resulting margin for error is very small. Org value is most realistic.
