Scouting Report:

from Don Olsen on 6/18/2013

JD has a wide, muscular frame and sloped shoulders.  He shows lower half development in the hips, strong foundation in a Gerrit Cole type mold.  Delivery has a bit of effort.  Lower half driven, but can show an upright release on occasion as he fails to get his weight over consistently.  Arm slot has decent three piece action and good at toe touch.  Overall, clean with a few minor issues.  Release has some plane, offering is fairly straight and lacks movement, but shows some rise around 93-94 mph.  Curve has some shape with some late drop that should round into an average offering.
