2017-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think at this time next year we will be talking about how underrated Patrick Weigel was ?
(Jason from Charlotte)
He is one of the 12, so I don't know how big a jump you get past that. He's somewhat a victim of the depth of the Braves system I suppose in terms of national profile. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-07-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Max Povse? Tall kid with decent stats. Read some positive things on him thus far, but would love to hear your opinion if you've seen him.
(Steve from Atlanta)
I have seen Povse, he's in my wheelhouse as a guy in an organization who has teams in both the SAL and Carolina League. Which is great, because when you add in Danville+how they've drafted pitchers, I'm feeling like it's the mid-90s with how many toolsy pitching prospects are running around the Southeast at these affiliates.

The good man Wilson Karaman and myself wrote up some thoughts on Povse around the Carolina League's all-star game.

Wilson:
" Extreme length to frame, narrow, sturdy strength, limbs for days; steady early rock, semi-wind, hands migrate, gradual gather to deep stab, takes a hot minute to gather and balance, fluid arm action, extreme uphill, high-three-quarters slot, lots of opportunity for timing issues to pop up, yanking balls low to glove side in this outing; FB 90-92, extreme plane, boring pitch with run, works north-south, deception helps it play up; 70 CB, round, some depth, finishes down; 83 CH, flat, tumble with mild fade, neither secondary looked like a swing-and-miss pitch."

...and mine here:
Povse was hit hard to start last year with the Mudcats, and he was eventually sent to Low-A Rome, where he made the majority of his 2015 starts. Back in the Carolina League this year-he will turn 23 this summer-things have gone much better for him. Built extra-tall and lanky at 6-foot-8 and maybe 200 pounds, his unusually-long levers add natural deception and downhill angle to a low-90s fastball. His upper-70s curveball shows average at best, and his changeup is playable. For such a large frame, he's limited walks very well his second run in the Carolina League, though it plays more as control than actual command within the zone.

Basically, I've seen Povse as a unique pitching prospect who does have some tools, but is still putting it all together as well. He's very tall and has flashes of two good raw pitches with his angle+arm-strength plus a shapely curveball. He's also a college pitcher in a system of high school guys, not to mention more risk/reward than the majority of college-drafted pitchers at this age. Which I guess also explains why guys like he and Patrick Weigel are in systems like Atlanta's... (Adam McInturff)
