Focus Area
Fastball:Bailey's fastball sat in the 90-94 mph range. He threw both two- and four-seam fastballs.
Curve:His curve was above-average, at times, and he threw it in the 71-78 mph range.
Changeup:Bailey didn't throw a changeup in this outing.
Control:Fair. His fastball was up in the zone too much.
Physical Description:Athletic body (he's also a position player) with some projection.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:Has the makings of two at least average offerings. Very athletic on the mound.
Weaknesses:His pitchability is only fair. He still needs to learn how to pitch.
Summary:There are some interesting parts there, with two promising pitches in a fastball that has been clocked as high as 94 mph and a curve that at times has shown above-average potential. He doesn’t have much of a changeup, something scouts would like to have seen in order to consider taking him in the early stages of the draft.
