Changeup 30 40 87-89 89 Changeup 87-89; third pitch right now; lacks feel for pitch; arm speed is better than in previous viewings; still in early stages of development; lacks overall movement; gets hitters in front because of FB velocity.
Overall

Acevedo has the size, projectability, a big arm, all of which are things I like to see out of young players. The Fastball is explosive and reports have had it touching higher in the past. The secondaries are coming along but needs more consistency from game-to-game in order to be a SP. In the bullpen his FB will really play up and you hope the breaking ball comes along with it.

Command- 35/40
Control- 40/50
