Pitch Type Present Grade Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 50 50 88-90 91 Average command; hard armside run with boring action; workable offering that was missing barrels; average velo but will be efficient due to movement in multiple directions.
SL 50 50 81-82 82 Average command; sweeping offering with mild bite; thrown primarily against RHH; able to wrap around corners of the plate; works well off FB because of the different look.
CH 40 40 79-80 82 Fringe Command; replicates arm speed; mild feel for pitch; mild fade; thrown primarily against LHH; hard to command offering due to falling off; drifts into zone too much; don't envision improvement due to mechanics.
Overall

Mayberry has a three pitch arsenal that presently plays at a level efficient enough for the majors. Slight gains in consistency with the mechanics will make him a more feasible asset moving forward, but the stuff is maxed and he could see time in the majors at some point within the next calendar year.

Round Drafted: 21st Round, 2014
Why: Senior Sign, potential quick-moving relief help with three respectable offerings.
