Focus Area
Fastball:DeVall threw his fastball up to 91 mph in this outing.
Fastball movement:When he was down in the zone, he had decent life on his fastball.
Curve:He has the makings of a good curve, but right now it's kind of slurvy and needs to be developed.
Changeup:DeVall showed a strong changeup.
Control:He's got excellent command, especially for a high schooler. With his delivery and arm action, he should always be able to stay around the strike zone.
Poise:DeVall competes very well on the mound.
Physical Description:DeVall is a big, strong left-hander with some athletic ability.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:Advanced idea of how to pitch; excellent command, easy delivery and good arm action.
Weaknesses:The curve/slider. When he develops it into an out pitch, look out.
Summary:A sort of pitchability high schooler, which is rare, but should not be overlooked. He's got the chance to have three outstanding pitches and knows how to command all three. A big, strong competitor, he goes right after hitters and shows the ability to repeat his mechanics consistently, something that's always a plus for scouts, even if he doesn't light up the radar gun.
