Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 65 93-96 97 arm-side sink; ball comes out easy from hand; present plus and could get to plus-plus with improved command and velo tick up from the bullpen.
CB 60 83-86 86 throw at SL velo; power CB; 10-4 shape; hard bite and late break; will sit at this velo from bullpen and could play plus from fear of FB and improved command.

Bryan Mitchell is a starter presently but the stuff will work better out of the bullpen. The FB has premium velocity and arm-side sink from 3/4 slot that could play up from the bullpen with improved command. The CB is thrown at SL velocity and can get slurvy at times but it could play plus out of FB fear and improved command of the pitch as well. Mitchell could be an effective bullpen arm in the near future.
