10/01/2016 - Pitching & Catching Accelerated Training Weekend (Ages 14-18) Nathan continued to show his skills as a pitcher at the Accelerated Training Weekend. Nathan has a great build for a pitcher and displays good mechanics. He gathers over the rubber and separates on time with a clean arm action. He extends through on his release and takes a square stride to the plate, finishing with his chest over his front knee. Nathan shows a three pitch mix with a fastball, curveball, and a changeup. His fastball has good arm side run and he commands it well. Changeup also has good run and cutting movement and he throws with fastball arm speed. Nathan can improve as a pitcher by using his lower half more in his motion and by working on his core strength. Overall, Nathan is a solid pitcher who has the potential to further develop his skills.
