    More of a 'pitcher'. FB in that 89-93 range (2 and 4 seamer), split finger, change up, slider. Good command. Not a lot of upside, but one of those solid types.

    His high school sounded familiar to me - quite a number of famous alums for a school that only opened around 1961.

    Good fastball, change. Needs work on his offspeed stuff.

    Love that he led the Cape Cod in Ks.

    According to one scouting report, he's a 48-52 package right now with upside coming pretty much only from finding an offspeed pitch. 75th prospect in the Cape Cod League, according to Perfect Game.

    Wow. Sparks are alumni from there, and they've easily been one of the biggest musical influences in my life. This pick just keeps getting better and better.

    Re: Jon Moscot

    I wanted to bump this thread to discuss the progress of Moscot. Right now, he is my Exhibit A of why a pitcher's won-loss record means squat. After being 2-14 in Bakersfield in 2014, he is pitching very well in the Southern League through 8 starts. While his 1.97 ERA may be a artificially low right now because of a .245 BABIP that may be unsustainable, his 2.68 BB/9 is his lowest since rookie ball. His K rate is down a bit to 6.79 K/9, but he has done a great job of supressing the longball allowing only 0.36 HR/9. His FIP of 3.17 is solid. I think Moscot could use 5-8 more starts in AA to show that the walk rate is for real, and if he can pick up that K rate back into the 8+ range, I will start getting really excited about him. He is definitely one of the most exciting pitching prospects to watch outside of Lively and Stephenson.

    Could he potentially be a national Top 100 prospect if he keeps this up through the time the mid-season prospect rankings come out?

    Re: Jon Moscot

    We tend to put pitchers in buckets. Moscot is in the bucket of "fifth starter swing man" like Sam Lecure. Which ain't bad. But sometimes these guys will fool you with a knack for getting batters out.

    So I'm hoping Moscot can be a solid mid-rotation starter. Or, he's possible trade bait by the Reds, if they think he is outperforming his potential.

    Glad they drafted him.

    No. Lively and Lorenzen are much more likely to crack the Top 100 prospects at midseason - even at this rate. That said, it's nice to see Moscot's success. He would make a great trade candidate in July if he continues to dominate AA.
    Go BLUE!!!

    His profile as a starter is better than LeCure's was as a starter in the minors.

    Doug, what future do you see for Moscot? Could he crack a top 100 list?

    Re: Jon Moscot

    At draft time two years ago, Moscot was described as having an 88-91 fastball with sink and average change up, split finger and slider. He was also said to have a funky delivery which added deception. Can anyone update this description? His GO/AO is .8; hardly indicative of a sinker pitcher. Is he throwing any harder? Has he improved his secondary pitches?

    Re: Jon Moscot

    He is throwing a little harder than 88-91.

    Here is some video of him from last August in Pensacola.
