Comments
Fastball:Farina can throw his fastball in the 89-94 mph range.
Slider:His slider projects as an average pitch.
Curve:Farina's curve is not consistent now, but projects to be an average pitch.
Changeup:Once again, there's projection with this pitch and it could be an average offering in the future.
Control:Farina is generally around the strike zone and has average overall command.
Poise:He's got good poise on the mound and is aggressive in attacking hitters.
Physical Description:A smaller right-hander, Farina has a Brandon Backe body type.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:Good velocity on the fastball, excellent poise, the chance to have a four-pitch mix.
Weaknesses:Outside of his fastball, nothing stands out right now. It's all about projection on his other pitches.
Summary:Farina has done a nice job as a middle reliever for Clemson, but there are those who think he might be able to start at the next level. That's because of a fastball with good velocity, and three other pitches that project to be average offerings if given the chance to develop them. He's aggressive and usually around the strike zone as well.
