Controlled rhythm to his swing and he rotates his core to his launch angle. Showed good barrel control, with a short barrel path, as he made contact to all fields with a bat exit velocity up to 62mph during BP. On the mound, he works exclusively from the stretch. He works with good rhythm and tempo. Throws from a 3/4 arm slot with natural movement to his arm side. Works off of a FB that sat 60-61mph, a 10/4 shaped breaking ball, a slider that comes out of same window as CB, and a changeup with deceptive action. Needs to incorporate his lower half more. Overall, Malhar is a solid 2-way prospect who has the potential to further build upon his skills on the field with continued development.
