Jimmy Herget

Born: 09/09/1993 (Age: 22)
Bats: Right Throws: Right
Height: 6' 3" Weight: 170
Mechanics
Tall very wiry body, has some physical projection remaining but not likely to fill out very much. Pitches from a 1/2 WU, slight jack-knife at the waist to help lower slot, can get too wide with body and lose pitch arm-side, short whippy AA with abv avg arm speed, slot ranges from L 3/4 to SA.

Pitch Type Present Grade Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 50 55 89-93 94 FB 89-93 T94, plus boring action, tough on RHH, weak contact and ugly swings, good control.

60/60- Movement
Slider 50 55 78-80 80 SL 78-80, large sweeping break with depth; good bite; threw a very large one at 73 with extreme depth and almost CB action, future above average offering.
Changeup 35 40 85-86 86 CH 85-86; more of a show-me pitch but usable vs LHH; good arm speed but very firm and not comfortable with pitch right now; could improve with future reps.
Overall

Herget is a tough matchup for hitters; especially RHH with his lower arm slot and plus movement. Pair this with average command with above average control and you get a guy with the potential to pitch high-leverage innings down the road.

Command- 45/50
Control- 55/55
