Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
4-Seam FB 65 93-94 95 Jumps out of the hand, has some late life, heavy down in the zone, showed feel to elevate, plus command to both sides
2-Seam FB 60 90-92 92 Solid arm-side run, advanced feel for age, will run in on the hands of left handed hitter to miss barrels, refinement of command will make for a plus offering in the future
CB 60 75-78 78 Plus feel, 1-6 movement, has bite, swing and miss potential, will bury in the dirt when ahead in the count, needs to become more consistent, will occasionally leave up
CH 50 83-86 86 Good velocity separation, shows some late tumble dropping out of the zone; inconsistent arm speed; could become average offering

The big-ticket purchase of San Diego's 2016 international signings, Morejon has the stuff of a top shelf pitching prospect. With an easy, low effort delivery and advanced feel, it's easy to forget that he is just 18 years old. There is plus command potential and four pitches that project to above average. If he can develop at least one into a true out pitch, there is a ceiling of a number two starter. Without, there is still a profile of middle-rotation starter that is tough on lefties.
