Chris Paddack

Born: 01/08/1996 (Age: 20)
Bats: Right Throws: Right
Height: 6' 5" Weight: 217
Delivery: Robotic, mechanical appearance to delivery. Funky double rock-step leading into a tall, slightly-turned leg lift. Finishes fairly clean and easy out front and stays on-line through his delivery's finish.

Needs to keep each motion of delivery in check or could see it fall apart, three-quarters slot, little bit aggressive finish

Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 60 91-93 94 Cutting motion on it usually; moves into zone; solid pitch overall; will work up in zone
CH 60 81   Plus pitch in the future; nice shape; arm side fade and occasional tumble; go to pitch in arsenal
CB 45 79-79   Loopy; fringe at best; need to tighten pitch and work on reps

Relies heavily on his average fastball, and plus change up with confidence. Changeup is go to pitch, will throw to righties. Fastball has life on it and velocity makes it an above average that has makings of a plus that he isn't afraid to work up in the zone with. Curveball needs a lot of improvement to get to fringe range but spun one that gave hope. Overall very average pitcher that will find himself in the bullpen the major-league level and be a useful piece in the role.
