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 wouldnâ€™t be significant. The arm works well not a super fast arm.
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.
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.
Command: well below average/below average. Overthrows it into the dirt often, as well as missing far outside to the gloveside. Didnâ€™t throw to armside. Arm slot moved down when he was trying to throw this pitch.
Movement: 10-4 sweeping movement
Notes: More horizontal break than vertical break. Doesnâ€™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 doesnâ€™t throw it anywhere close to where he needs to it wonâ€™t matter.Â Â
Command: good to armside
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.Â Â
-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 didnâ€™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 isnâ€™t good enough out of the pen.Â Â
