This velocity increase definitely improves his chances.

I would say he has to be.

He was very raw out of H.S. after growing 8 inches rapidly, which is probably why he was under the radar.

That’s very interesting. I wonder what they’ll do if he loses that movement when he starts “finishing” the pitch. I also wonder if they shouldn’t just let him tinker with this unfinished two-seamer, because a 91 MPH slider would be a pretty damn awesome thing to have in his arsenal.

What a future – 6’7″, hitting 95/96 and just turned 19. Signed to attend Portland U before the draft, it seems big D-1 colleges missed the boat on this kid, but not the Pirates.

a sliding action when the pitcher doesn’t ‘finish’ the pitch, as Mess noted to me. Because it was down, it was effective.

Is that a mistake? Two-seamers usually move to the arm side. Was it maybe a cutter?
