Pitch Type Present Grade Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 50 60 90-92 94 Good command; throws a lot of strikes; can hit all four quadrants of zone; fastball has some sink to it; with his size he might even add to his FB velo.
CB 50 55 76-77 79 1-7 break; good spin; throws for strikes; has above-average control; could be a good out pitch with some work.
CH 50 60 80-82 84 Has excellent control and confidence in pitch; although it's his third pitch, he will rely on it more if the curveball isn't working; not afraid to throw when behind in the count.
Overall

Gomber is your typical Cardinal organizational pitcher. He's a solid pitcher who just throws strikes and has good command of all three pitches. Solid chance to be a back of the rotation guy.
