12/03/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Lynwood (Chicago), IL Sullivan is a young (2023 grad) 2-way player as a SS/RHP. With the bat, this RHH displays an athletic stance with centered balance. He likes the pitch on the inner 1/2 and will pull it with some pop. At SS, he shows active footwork and is aggressive to come and get the GB. He funnels smoothly and plays through it well. On the mound, Minor has a 3-pitch mix (FB, CB, CH) coming from a high 3/4 arm slot. He works to a controlled balance point, has smooth separation and fires from a loose/free arm action. He works tall and drives downhill, repeating his delivery well. FB ranges from 62-64 mph while showing some run. Breaking ball has 11/5 shape as he works to keep it down in the zone. Continuing to work on the following will help to improve his all-around skill-set on the diamond.
