Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 70 93-96 98 Velocity: 70/80
Movement: 50/50
Command: 30/40

T98 2x; downhill plane; life; mild deception; deception plays up against LHH; command is inconsistent but mechanics can be cleaned up enough to allow more consistency.
SL 50 85-86 87 Movement: 50/50
Command: 30/40

Replicates arm speed; short and tight with bite; inconsistent release point; pitch can flatten; improvements in release points and command can allow pitch to play average.

Scott is a power arm that has the potential to work in the late innings of a game. The FB/SL combo is efficient and both pitches have deception against LHH. The command and mechanics are inconsistent, but there has been slight improvement in all three of my viewings this season. The risk remains high due to limited innings and command.

Round Drafted: 6th round, 2014.
Why: Power arm that profiles as a back-end reliever.
