Down on the Farm...

Carlton Trachsel
Nashville Nalas

Score - 51
Fastball Velocity - 65
Fastball Movement - 60
Control - 65
Command - 55
Change Up - 50
Curveball - 45
Cut Fastball - 20

Carlton was shipped out from Seattle in a package deal with Ed Darnell for Juan Latos. Carlton hits 92 to 95 with his fastball and has good movement, and it is definitely a plus pitch. His change up and curveball are all fringe-average. The cut fastball should be dropped since he could work with three pitches as a starter. He struggles to get opposite handed batters out. His control looks to be plus in the future.  His ceiling is a ML #3 starter with a floor of a ML long reliever. When you are visiting Nashville in a couple of seasons, look for Carlton to be their #5 starter.
