Zach Davies Scouting Report

His 4S fastball sits 87-90 mph , and will touched 91 on occasions. Shows the ability to at least maintain mid range into the third turn of the order. Throws a heavy fastball and shows some sneak up ability to it. His 2S fastball has some good late lateral movement, mainly 86-87 mph. It mostly runs late tailing away, but he did throw a cutter/sinker blend that rode glove side. The pitch is really difficult to pick up off the change up and makes it very difficult to square up.

Grade 4S: 4.5 (5/5.5)
Grade 2S: 5.5 (6)

excellent report by Don, as usual.

The Orioles should duct tape this kid awith a note to a pole outside Brady Anderson's house this winter. The note should say "bucket squats" and "medicine ball". The squats will build the legs and vertical core muscles; and the medicine ball will build the obliques, shoulders and trunk muscles. Combine that with a high protein diet and see how fast he rockets through the system.
