Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 70 92-96 97 Easy plus pitch; Worked 95-96 T97 in 1st appearance; 93-95 from the stretch; pitch features very good arm-side run; bores into RHH; can also sink the pitch; arm speed and quick delivery gives the pitch deception; little plane due to short stature; was a tick down in second appearance but still had plus movement; pounded the zone with it; plays down; command was a little loose; control got away from him and walked a batter on four pitches; can be plus-plus offering with more command.
CB 65 79-82 83 Severe two-plane break; plus offering; 11-5 shape; snaps his wrist and gets on top of the pitch well; arm slot and speed works off the fastball; can lengthen horizontal break away from RHH; throws it for strikes and for chase; can be wild in the zone; can be plus-plus with better command/control.

Gott has a super quick arm that can touch the high 90's. He's already in Double-A following an appearance in the A+ all-star game where he reportedly sat 94-98. The plane on his fastball isn't great because of his size, but the movement is plus-plus and I love the way he challenges hitters with it. Looks like he can make a contribution to the Padres bullpen sometime next season, with a very good fastball/curveball mix that plays well at the backend.
