Focus Area
Comments
Fastball:Gearrin throws an average fastball.
Fastball movement:His fastball has below-average life.
Slider:Gearrin's slider projects as an average pitch. Right now, it's not as there is too much sweeping action when he throws it.
Control:He should have average command in the future.
Poise:Gearrin is a very aggressive pitcher as Mercer's closer.
Physical Description:Gearrin is a sidearming right-hander with a Scot Shields body type.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:Gearrin's sidearm action is difficult to pick up for hitters.
Weaknesses:The arm angle does cause the sweep on the slider.
Summary:Gearrin jumped on the map early this year when his Mercer team took two games from the University of Miami. Gearrin saved both of those games, going three innings and striking out six without allowing a hit. The sidearmer is a very aggressive pitcher who'll need to work on tightening his slider. He profiles as a decent middle or setup guy out of someone's bullpen.
