When our other prospect writers submit scouting reports, I'll give a short background industry consensus tool grades. There's two causes of this: 1) giving context to take into account the author visiting a bad outing (never threw his changeup, coming back from injury, etc.) and 2) not making him continue about the players background or speculate about what may have happened in other outings.

The writer still grades the tools according to D.J. White Jersey the things they saw, Im just letting your reader know what he wouldve observed in manyother games from this season, particularly with young players that may be fatigued late in the season.The grades are presented as present/future on the 20-80 scouting scale and very shortly Ill create a series entering more depth explaining these grades.-Kiley

As the whole internet appears to know, Arizona Fall League kicked off yesterday and that i scooted to Salt River Fields at Talking Stick for the nightcap that featured an Archie Bradley v. Tyler Glasnow pitching matchup.

Archie Bradley, RHP, Diamondbacks (Arizona Fall League)

You can ready Kileys full report on Bradley in the full prospect rankings for Arizona.

Fastball: 60/70, Curveball: 55/65, Changeup: 45/50, Command: 40/45+, Future Value: 60 Kiley

Bradley has got the prototypical workhorse starters build at each little bit of 6-foot-4, 235 lbs. and a low effort delivery that adds to scouts confidence about his capability to eat innings.Bradley doesnt repeat said delivery, however, and suffers control and command i sues that are primarily caused by release point variation. Both are below average. Id love to look at how relaxed and easy Bradleys delivery is and project the control and Marcus Allen Jersey command to average but he just turned 22 and weve all been awaiting his strike throwing ability to arrive since he was drafted. I'm able to only project it to fringe average.

The great news for Bradley is the fact that his fastball/breaking ball combination is frontline hellacious. The fastball sat 93-96 with arm side run and it is a true plus-plus pitch. There have been even some instances last night where it featured natural cut when Bradley worked to the glove-side area of the plate. It had been an abbreviated outing for Bradley and that i have to question whether hes be able to sustain the bountiful 94s and 95s he was pumping in with ease. The catch-playing nature of his delivery is evidence he may in fact have the ability to achieve this. Good news for a guy coming off of a season abbreviatedby an elbow strain.

Bradleys low-80s curveball also flashed 65 with sharp downward movement but was not consistently that good, maybe a half grade below for most from the night, good enough to garner plenty of swings and mi ses. Another concern for Bradley right now is really a insufficient viable changeup. Bradleys coast in like BP fastballs, about 88mph without any tumble or run. Bradley lacks a feel for the pitch, even from a strike-throwing standpoint, and the few he did get within the plate were had by hitters. He only threw a couple cambios and that i expect Anthony Sherman Jersey to see more because the AFL carries on. It's a developmental league, in the end.

Between the command i sues and insufficient another pitch this deep into the game for Bradley, I can see why doubts about his capability to eat through a big league lineup three or four times are beginning to creep in. The juicy raw ability is very enticing, however. His #2 starter ceiling remains but the chances of him attaining it aren't up to they were this past year at this time. More likely, for Darrin Reaves Jersey me, hes a #3 type starter (if either the changeup or control out live my projections a bit) or perhaps a high-leverage reliever (if neither do)

Longenhagens Grades: Fastball: 70/70 Curveball: 55/65 Changeup: 40/45 Command: 40/45 FV: 60

Matt McPhearson, CF, Arizona Diamondbacks (Rookie Level AZL)

McPhearson was one of the premium athletes within the 2013 draft cla s, hailing from a senior high school in a state unfamiliar for producing high draft picks: Maryland. The DBacks gave him $500,000 within the 4th round and hes played two years of rookie ball with the expected results: lots of speed and defense, some feel to Jimmy Hall Jerseyhit and get on base, but very little power due to his slender 58 frame. McPhearson will progre s an amount next year and the inconsistentswing mechanics still need some try to unlock the line-drive slasher approach that may make him right into a big league regular.

Hit: 20/35, Game Power: 20/30, Raw Power: 35/40, Speed: 70/70, Fielding: 50/60, Arm: 50/50+, FV: 40 Kiley

McPhearson has three plus or better tools; hes among the 2 or 3 fastest players Ive ever timed down the road. Ive seen him run down mi siles launchedinto outfield gaps that seemed destined for extra bases. Ive seen him uncork frozen ropes from centerfield to third base to erase base runners. McPhearson is among the most entertaining players Ive ever endured the pleasure of scouting. And that i dont think hes a large leaguer.

McPhearson is diminutive (just 5-foot-8 and 164 lbs.) and explosive, clocking in between 3.94 and 4.02 from the batters box to first. Days past are comfortably plus-plus and the speed plays on defense too, where McPhearson traverses an expanse greater than that of his home state (Woo! Marylandjokes!) and profiles as plus in center field or plus-plus in left, where also, he saw time this year. While McPhearson is simply fringe-average defensivelyright now because of some circuitous routes and still-developing feel, hes just 19 and has an extended developmental path which he is able to improve his sense of the position. The requisite skills are for him to be a special defender.

Ive seen the arm flash 65 however it would be a throw that McPhearson could throw his entire body into. He wont also have that luxury. Whenever you grade the arm in the aggregate, throwing all sorts of different platforms, the arm looks Dustin Colquitt Jersey more like a 55.

Things get fatal when we consider the bat. McPhearson doesnt use his lower half very efficiently, your swing is handsy and slappy and the bat path isn't conducive of contact or power, almost downward sloping. Hes a future 30 hit, 20 power guy for me based on what Im seeing right now. Obviously, just like McPhearson has time for you to polish up his defense, also can he focus on his swing. It takes a special kind of neuromuscular control to manifest any potential changes and isnt something which can easily be done with just reps. When the swing receives a facelift of Matt Hagen proportions then it will be time for you to re-evaluate. Until then, this package is too much Derrick Johnson Jersey like the woebegone Tyson Gillies for me to project any kind of impact.

With arapid evolution of defensive valuation underway, its po sible McPhearson tickles somebodys fancy and finds his way to the big leagues as a replacement outfielder and pinch running specialist the same way Terrence Gore has. But when he cant hit, and I dont suspect he will, hes not an everday player.

Longenhagens Grades: Hit: 20/30, Power: 20/20, Speed: 70/70, Fielding: 45/60, Arm: 55/60, FV: 40
