PTP Scouting Report by Zach Mortimer: Sugar Ray Marimon

Sugar Ray Marimon

 

Name: Sugar Ray Marimon
Right Handed Pitcher
Arm Slot: Hi 3/4
Stretch Times: 1.25-1.40

Delivery: Has a little bit of effort in the delivery. Decent amount of moving pieces and falls off to the first base side fairly hard.

Body: Body is physically mature. Could add good weight on his lower half but it wouldn’t be significant. The arm works well not a super fast arm.

 

 

Fastball

Command: Average to below average. Leaves up in the zone far to often. Flashes the ability to keep it low. Far more confident to throw it to armside as opposed to gloveside.

Velo: 88-92

Movement: Flashes good armside run and sink

Grade: future 40 pitch that could play up to 50 with a tick or two more velo out of the pen.

Curveball

Command: well below average/below average. Overthrows it into the dirt often, as well as missing far outside to the gloveside. Didn’t throw to armside. Arm slot moved down when he was trying to throw this pitch.

Velo: 74-77

Movement: 10-4 sweeping movement

Notes: More horizontal break than vertical break. Doesn’t stay on top of the pitch to get the vertical break. Spins it very well though to get sharp movement. This can be a bat misser when he can command it

Grade: This is a potential 40 pitch, this could play way down because of the command issues. The sharp breakers can miss bats however if he doesn’t throw it anywhere close to where he needs to it won’t matter.  

Change-up

Command: good to armside

Velo: 79-81

Movement: two plane movement with tumbling action as well as armside fade

Grade: Future 50 would like to see him throw it more. Has potential to be a very good pitch against lefties.  

Overall: 

-Has two below average pitches as well as a potential average pitch.

-The body is probably what you see is what you get.

-Curveball flashes sharp break however the command needs a ton of work

-Change up could be a good pitch. He didn’t show enough confidence in it. He went to his curveball to be his out pitch instead of the change.

- Will need to move to move to the pen and hopefully get a few ticks on the fastball even though the delivery already shows some effort.

Ceiling: Up and down reliever who never can stick because the fastball just isn’t good enough out of the pen.

About The Author

I grew up on the mean gravel roads of Iowa where I started my love for baseball from the age of 2. George Brett and the voice of Denny Matthews deepened my love even more for the Royals as my father and I spent summers listening to the team on our deck or in the car on our way to or from my little league and high school games. Sports was always the common bond that my father and I enjoyed and the Royals were in the center of that.I currently live in La Vista with my wife, two sons, two dogs and a pair of gross cats where we are grinding through until we can move somewhere warm when we retire. I own Casino Cab Company and Bluffs Affordable Auto Repair in Council Bluffs trying to build my 1% empire. If you are in the area you can find me at Omaha Storm Chasers games on most nights or just follow me on twitter @ClintScoles.

    Hey Marimons curve has much more horizontal break than vertical if you look at the clock the ball will break from 10 to 4 making it go toward the gloveside.

    I having a hard time visuallizing a 10-4 curveball from a righty….need help….so it comes out of his hand towards the the glove side and then breaks back toward the arm side….???
