Amateur Notes

Jeffrey Paternostro
Nate Florence, RHP, University of Hartford
2019 arm, SWU, shuffle and go, closed off and a bit uphill, compact arm action (don’’t love it, but the delivery overall if fine and he’s athletic enough to repeat it). Three-quarters slot, some deception, 1.3 to home. FB 87-92, s88-90, added velo from last year, holds it better into games, adds when needed (90-92 in the 4th), center-cut and flat when he tired, will show run and sink. CU 71-76, improving but slurvy, 11-4, flashed downer, but a bit soft, abandoned it late in the outing for FB-heavy approach. CH 80, 82. Worth a follow, potential Day 3 arm, maybe more if the breaker continues to improve.
