    Fastball: Tuttle threw his fastball anywhere between 88 and 94 mph and sat comfortably at 90-91 mph.
    Fastball movement: Tuttle has plus sink on his fastball.
    Slider: He has a plus slider.
    Changeup: His changeup is just OK ... a work in progress.
    Control: His command was bad in the summer, good again early, then bad again.
    Poise: Has decent mound presence.
    Physical Description: Tuttle isn't all that big, kind of medium sized and isn't overly physical. He uses a low three-quarters delivery.
    Medical Update: Healthy.
    Strengths: Arm strength and good pure stuff, with two above-average to plus pitches and a third that has a chance.
    Weaknesses: Command, largely because of delivery problems. He doesn't always keep his direction to the plate.
    Summary: There's a lot to like about Tuttle, the North Carolina prep star. He has a great arm with good pure stuff, highlighted by a plus slider and a fastball he can run up to 94 mph. He also has the makings of a changeup. What he doesn't always have is consistent command, affected by a somewhat unorthodox delivery that he has trouble repeating. Still, there's plenty to work with for any team that decides to take him on Draft Day.

    There is a Albert Pujols (12th round) and Ian Kinsler (17th round) out there somewhere. Go find him Buckley!

    Reds drafted RHP David Tuttle many years ago, and sent him to Detroit in the David Wells trade

    Plus he now has Mario Soto to help him with that change. What's not to like?
    Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one, and they don't want someone else's shoved into their face.

    Watching his scouting video, his slider is VERY nasty

    Reds seem to have all but given up on offense.

    Malm goes to TB at the tail end of round 5.

    Interestingly, he's got the same name as the bed I just bought from Ikea.
