Down on the Farm...

Jack Brown
Rochester Retards

Score - 52
Fastball Velocity - 35
Fastball Movement - 25
Control - 70
Command - 45
Curveball - 75
Change Up - 60

Jack was the #14 pick in last season's draft. His curveball buckles knees and is his go to pitch. His change up is deceiving since he uses the same arm slot as his fastball. He has a nice smooth delivery which allows him to repeat it. His control is continuing to improve and looks to be plus plus along with his curveball. His fastball is flat, and he throws it at 86 to 88 MPH which is a nice batting practice fastball. He keeps the ball in the park. Since he is a groundball pitcher with great control along with his amazing curveball and change up, he should be able to make it to the majors. His ceiling looks to be a #3 starter with his floor in long relief. Currently, he projects to be a #5 starter and may remind some of Bronson Arroyo of the Cincinnati Reds.
