Ryan Zeferjahn

Born: 02/28/1998 (Age: 21)
Bats: Right Throws: Right
Height: 6' 5" Weight: 225
Mechanics
Slow motion. Doesn't use lower half completely. Good extension. Front shoulder was inconsistent in positioning when glove hand pointed toward home plate. Throws from three-quarter slot but slot moved up and down due to front shoulder problems.

Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 55 92-94 94 Could not consistently locate fastball. Straight. He relied a lot on his fastball.
Slider 50 81-85 85 Sweeping pitch with late bite. Shape varied with some having more downward movement. Needs to improve command.
Changeup 50 84-85 85 Fairly straight with minimal downward movement. Pitch usually missed down in zone.
Overall

With not much command of any pitches at the moment, Zeferjahn is a risky pick. His high-end fastball will help him miss bats at lower levels, but he needs to gain more feel for secondary pitches if he wants to stay a starter.
