Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 50 88-91 92 Velocity currently sits in the average band for a lefty but will tick up a notch as he matures. He commands the fastball well to both sides and his natural arm-side run and ability to cut it help him stay off barrels.
Changeup 50 80-84 85 Currently the most advanced secondary. Replicates his arm action well. Fades away from hitters, eliciting weak contact.
Slider 50 77-80 83 Thrown slightly harder than the curve, but the two will blend together at times. When he gets it right it features 1-7 shape. Not a true swing and miss offering but will be an effective breaking pitch with continued development.
Curveball 40 74-78 78 Lacks feel, only mixed in a handful during my look mostly to steal a strike early in the count.

Povich doesn't blow hitters away with premium stuff but he's more than just a typical soft-tossing, under-slot, college lefty. He displays knowledge of pitch sequencing and mixes his pitches well to keep hitters off-balance. With expected velocity gains for the fastball and continued development of the secondaries Povich profiles as a future back of the rotation starter.
