Down on the Farm...

Arthur Kershaw
Tampa Bay Thunder

Score - 54
Fastball Velocity - 75
Fastball Movement - 60
Control - 45
Command - 50
Slider - 55
Change Up - 40

Arthur has a developing slider that will be a plus pitch. His fastball has decent movement and hits 94 to 98 MPH on the radar gun. He is more of a groundball pitcher which will help him greatly. He doesn't have the feel for a change up. His control is most worrying since he gives up a lot of free passes. Being a first round pick, he will be given every opportunity to make it to the majors. His ceiling looks to be a ML long reliever with his floor as a AAA SP. With his lack of control, only look for Arthur in the majors if an injury hits and Tampa Bay needs a spot starter or long reliever.
