Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 45 92 95 Four-seam fastball was 92-94 t95 through the first two innings but faded to 90-92 t93 by the final 30 pitches of his outing. Hunter Bishop sat on a first-inning fastball for a massive 435' home run and Hill
Slider 50 83 86 Sharp slider which tunnels well with the fastball and got a couple of swing throughs on Monday. There were a few 88-90 mph floaters that could have been bad changeups, but they seemed like sliders that slipped out and didn't have a break. Jairo Pomares clobbered one 110 mph for a double. Still, even when the slider did break, it tended to float up in the zone when he tried to throw it for a strike. If he can clean that up it has the potential to be an average big-league offering.
Curveball 50 78 80 Big swooping 11-5 curveball that generated best whiffs and check swings, particularly against the least experienced hitters. He had a better feel for the pitch that his slider, but Hill struggled to keep it down when he tried to throw it for strikes. With that said, he did a good job placing it outside and low as a chase pitch.

Hill has three potential big-league pitches and an athletic 6-foot-1 frame but has a below-average fastball and lacks a carrying tool at the moment. I could see Hill holding mid-90s velocity in the bullpen and being a solid middle reliever, but wouldn't be surprised if he develops enough command to end up an up-and-down starter.
