Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 70 93-95 96 Commands it well, shows ability to elevate, gets at hands and generates late swings, swing-and-miss in and above zone, will tease a cut on it and hold velo band, projection for another couple ticks at peak; plays above radar with life and explosion
CB 60 75-79 79 Advanced pitch, mostly works it ball-to-strike, consistently lands it into the zone, best flash tight two-plane action, will take a little off of it for a different look; plays well off fastball line, quality tunnel; arm angle will dip on some, casts it on occasion
SL 55 82-83 85 Short action, tight spinner, will flash depth, finishes well, will throw through the pack door or draw it out as a chaser, less consistent present feel, plenty of flashes; lacks ceiling of the curve, but a similarly advanced, quality pitch
CH 55 80-83 85 Tight fade with some bottom below the zone, can struggle to find release and sail it, competitive efforts flash late action, plus velo separation, plays well in arsenal, elements to grow into above-average pitch

Gore is an elite pitching prospect, with top-shelf athleticism and command of his physicality. The raw stuff is outstanding. It's a deep arsenal of pitches that play well together. He's balanced and consistent with his mechanics and pitch execution. This is what a front-of-the-rotation arm looks like.
