03/29/2009 - College PREP - Pittsburgh, PA John is a young LHP with a small, thin frame that shows projection as he continues to physically mature. Delivery is average showing a lot of movement and effort. With some instruction and polish with mechanics, delivery will become more fluid and repeatable. Arm action is slightly above average with a hitch in the back of the arm swing. Arm strength is near average and must get on a strict long toss program to aid in further developing more arm strength, raising velocities. Fastball shows life on a flat plane. Off speed pitches are average. Breaking ball displays a 2/8 shape with early break as he slows his arm speed. Changeup shows an average feel for with fading action. With 2 years to further develop, John has the makings to be a solid arm, especially if arm strength rises.
