Bubba Derby

Born: 02/24/1994 (Age: 22)
Bats: Left Throws: Right
Height: 5' 11" Weight: 185
Mechanics
Medium frame with a large muscular chest and body, lacks overall physical projection at this point. Pitches from a full windup, good hip/shoulder clearance, adds to deception and stuff, long arm action with above average arm speed, 3/4 slot, lacks plane overall.

Pitch Type Present Grade Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 50 55 89-92 93 89-92 T93; some run; fair control of pitch.

45/45 movement
Changeup 50 55 80-82 82 80-82, go-to pitch; would pitch backwards; good arm speed and feel for pitch; parachute action with late fade; above-average future offering.
Curveball 40 45 77-80 80 77-80, 11/5 shape; slurvy; lacked consistent shape; fair depth and bite; fringe-average offering.
Overall

Good arm strength and is a competitor, see more as a bullpen arm where FB will play up, the lack of a consistent breaking ball will hurt as he moves up in a rotation role.

35/45 Command
45/50 Control
