Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 45 89-91 91 Average two-seam life, works the edges to lefties and on the inner half to righties and gets fair share of weak contact. Can be vulnerable when left over the plate. Works with a small margin of error but keeps ball in the zone and works ahead of hitters, fringe-average offering.
Curveball 40 71-74 74 Change of pace offering, not sharp but shows average depth with 11/5 shape, used to steal a strike and broke out second time through the order. Lacks sharpness to be an ideal chase pitch, below-average offering.
Slider 50 82-84 85 Primary breaker, short overhand action, primary chase pitch, kept down in the zone, effective at getting swings and misses down in the zone, future average offering.
Changeup 60 83-85 85 Best off speed pitch for him, throws with deceptive arm speed and has late drop, almost like a split. Throws for strikes as well as for chase. Threw to both sides, out pitch for him, could go to it whenever he needed, plus offering.

See as a back-end starting pitcher, 22 y/o RHP, relies on a plus changeup and plus control. He is effective even with a fringe fastball. Slider is secondary out pitch and an average offering. High risk given the thin margin of error he works with, moderate interest.
