Pitch Type Present Grade Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 65 70 94-98 98 Heavy, sinking action and some tail; more arm side run when thrown high; misses bats up and down; throws with lots of natural downward plane and very difficult to elevate; double plus movement. Future average command; throws low to both sides of the plate; pounds bottom of the strike zone; can also elevate and generate swings and misses while climbing the ladder.
Splitter 70 70 86-88   Outstanding life and movement; spikes downward as it reaches the plate; appears to fall off a cliff. Same arm speed and look as fastball; starts off throwing at bottom of zone; induces ugly swings and misses; very effective chase; major league strikeout pitch.
Overall

60; Closer. Light is a huge power reliever with two future 70 pitches. He misses bats up and down in the zone. His height and the plane of his FB keeps the ball on the ground and in the park. With double plus stuff and average command, Light profiles as a relief ace who can handle the 9th inning for a playoff team.
