This athletic RHP has a 3-pitch arsenal in which he will keep hitters guessing. Arm works free & clean as he drives downhill toward the dish. FB jumps out of his hand and has life, cracking the mitt at 92 mph. Breaking ball has good depth with 11/5 shape. He commands it well and can throw it for strikes in any count. He works the ball in and out and keeps it down in the zone. Connor still has more in the tank which bodes well for this RHP who already sits in the low 90's.
