Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 60 95-96 97 Easy velocity, ball jumps out of his hand, holds velocity deep into his outings; Straight and flat offering lacking movement; Currently, more control over command; Has the velocity to be a double -plus pitch but plays down due to command and movement.
Changeup 60 83-86 86 Firm but he sells it well with good arm speed replication and excellent velocity separation. Generated plenty of weak, out-in-front swings during my looks.
Slider 60 83-87 87 Still developing a feel for both of the breaking pitches with the slider slightly more advanced. Sweeping action, will throw it out of the zone to generate swing and miss. Future out pitch with continued development.
Curveball 50 78-81 81 Only threw the curve a handful of times in each outing, still a work in progress; 12-6 movement with some depth; Potential major league average offering.

Nastrini battled severe control issues at UCLA but has returned to form in the professional ranks. The overall stuff is excellent and he possesses a physical build that will be capable of logging starting pitcher innings. The variance of the profile is very high, the control could easily slip and flame out early. However, if the command keeps coming together, he could become a front of the rotation arm.
