Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 60 92-93 94 Despite lack of height, high arm slot helps the pitch get some downward plane; Straight but has some late life; currently more control rather than command; Velocity will tick up a notch in a bullpen role.
Curveball 50 75-80 80 Currently inconsistent offering but has potential to be his best secondary; 12-6 shape, gets depth from the high arm slot; Throws consistently for strikes; Will improve with reps, potential average offering
Changeup 40 81-83 83 Change of pace offering, currently inconsistent, flat with little horizontal or vertical movement
Slider   81 81 Only threw a couple in this look, not enough to place a grade

A seventh-round, underslot signing out of Georgia Tech, Curry has found success as a starter early in his professional career but is likely destined for a bullpen role. Small in stature, he uses a high arm slot to make the fastball tough for hitters to pick up. He pairs it with the curve, which is the best secondary and has potential to be an average offering. Profiles as a future middle reliever.
