Pitch Type Present Grade Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 70 80 95-97   Command - 30/40
Movement - 40/40

Big fastball; moderate downward plane; mild movement, didn't gain movement lower in the velocity band; misses east and west due to inconsistent release point.
Curveball 40 45 75-77   Command - 20/30
Movement - 55/60

Replicates FB arm speed; flashes tight movement but is inconsistent at present; poor command on the offering, has no idea where it's going.
Overall

Drafted by the Tampa Bay Rays in the 6th round of the 2012 MLB June Amateur Draft from King George HS (King George, VA). Carroll's calling card, a fastball that can flirt with 100, is his best pitch and he backs it up with a curveball that flashes promise but Carroll has a low likelihood of having much MLB utility as his command is very poor. He threw one changeup, he won't need it in a relief role.
