Pitch Type Present Grade Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 45 50 87-91 92 Straight pitch with some boring action, moderate deception, downhill plane; limited swing-and-miss, inconsistent command to glove-side, velocity fluctuates; fringe-average present pitch can play to average with improved consistency.
CH 45 55 78-82 82 Above-average fade and tumble, consistent arm speed, plus velocity separation; confidence in pitch, will throw right-on-right, double-up; works off fastball plane when he turns it over but inconsistent execution, will leave flat and wide arm-side.
SL 30 40 84-85 86 Short break, breaks early, minimal tilt, not a bat-misser.
CB 30 40 77-80 80 Show-me pitch, visible out of hand; 12-6 with some depth but lacks bite, arm slows a touch on delivery.
Overall

Garrett competes well and shows fire in his belly, but the stuff and command profile isn't quite enough to project a big-league career with confidence. His fastball is an average pitch with some inconsistency in execution, and while the change plays well off the fastball plane the breaking pitches lag and limit the ceiling.
