    Repertoire of Tyler Pelland

    Does anyone know what he throws besides the heater? Just wondering.

    He has a 4 seam fastball he throws up to 95. He also has a 2 seam FB he throws at times. He has a curveball that could be a plus pitch one day. He has a problem with consistancy in his curveball though, and when its not on, its feasting time on the FB. He has a change up, that well isnt that good at all.

    Pelland has a heater and that is it, really. Like dd said, he has a curveball, but it isn't very good and his changeup makes Homer's look elite.

    Pelland going to the fall league is a sign that the conversion to the pen may be near.

    Pelland is much like a lefthanded version of Travis Chick.

    The Scouting Report on Pelland from Spring Training this year

    Cincinnati acquired lefties Phil Dumatrait and Pelland from the Red Sox for Scott Williamson at the July 2003 trade deadline. While Dumatrait has been waylaid by Tommy John surgery, Pelland quickly emerged as the top lefty in the Reds system. After posting an 8.66 ERA in low Class A in 2004, he made a successful transition to full-season ball, jumping to high Class A, in 2005. Pelland throws his four-seam fastball at 92-93 mph and can dial it up to 95 at times, and he also has a lively two-seamer. He commands his fastball well, and shows the ability to spin a plus curveball. He’s a good athlete who has dominated in spurts. Pelland’s curve is inconsistent. When it’s not on, hitters can sit on his fastball because his circle changeup is below average and hasn’t developed as expected. At 22, he’s still far from a refined product, as his control numbers suggest, although as a Northeastern pitcher, he doesn’t have many innings on his arm. Pelland has a fresh arm, but needs to take a significant step forward as he approaches Double-A. If he can’t improve his secondary pitches, a future in the bullpen awaits him.
