On his best nights, he features a 91-96 mph fastball and a power curveball that both rate as 70s on the 20-80 scouting scale. That combination allowed Moore to strike out 208 batters in 145 innings, more whiffs than any minor league pitcher since Clint Nageotte had 214 eight years ago.Joe Cruz also made it, at #15:
At his best, he has a fastball that touches 95-96 mph and works down in the zone with the kind of downward plane that leaves hitters helpless. But in the next inning, he might have an 86-88 mph fastball. His velocity varies so much because he has a rough delivery with a long arm action and a wrap in the back.In the Southern League, Alex Torres was #12:
Torres strides across his body and catapults over his front side, creating plus life on his low-90s fastball. Managers rated his changeup the best in the league, and he sells it well with good arm speed. His curveball is a plus pitch when he's on.And Alex Cobb was #19:
Cobb's fastball sits in the low 90s with occasional sink. His main trouble is fastball command, because he sometimes to get too cute with locating the pitch. His most reliable pitch is his above-average changeup, while he's still refining both of his breaking balls, a high-70s curveball that's a plus pitch at times and a low-80s slider with average tilt.
