Pitch Type Present Grade Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 50 60 90-93 94 Average command of pitch, some wiggle to miss bats, arm-side run; can show heavy and boring pitch when he's consistently on top of it; works well east-west, generally stays off barrels but will leak up in zone; better late life on pitch when seen in second outing
CB 50 60 74-75 76 Shape shifts between 11-5 and 12-6; average command, will flash plus with above-average bite, inconsistent present depth and arm speed, ball-to-strike will get loopy early in counts; 12-6 shows chase potential, can bury it as a put-away
CH 30 40 84-85 86 Only showed sporadically; flashed average command on a couple, inconsistent present; plays pretty straight, lacks tumble, moderate velo separation; below-average projection

Overall

Blewett is a tall, projectable right-hander, and there's potential for two plus pitches if he can consistently replicate his motion and get his release point down pat. The changeup doesn't present as a reliable third pitch right now, and is in need of significant development. Blewett could rise to the Majors as a middle reliever with two plus pitches, but for him to play out as a starter, he'll have to gain more traction with a third-pitch to keep lefties at bay.
