Focus Area
Comments
Fastball:Conver's fastball sat at around 87 mph in this outing, touching 90 at times. He throws it from a 3/4 slot.
Fastball movement:His fastball has some heavy sink when he gets downhill with his delivery.
Curve:It's a big, sweeping slurve that he throws in the 74-77 mph range.
Changeup:It's a below-average offering that he doesn't use enough.
Control:He tends to throw across his body and doesn't repeat his delivery, which leads to a loss of command.
Poise:He can get rattled when opposing teams get to him.
Physical Description:He's a tall, lanky right-hander with an extremely projectable frame.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:Projection. His fastball, at times, can be nasty, and as he matures, there should be more in the tank.
Weaknesses:He's not consistent with his mechanics and doesn't always have command as a result.
Summary:With a tall, lanky body and clearly the kind of frame that has plenty of room for growth, Conver is the kind of high school pitcher projection fans will love. His fastball has some heavy sink when he's throwing it well, but some delivery issues keep him from being too consistent across the board. He'll get plenty of looks playing with Eric Hosmer and Adrian Nieto at American Heritage and whoever takes him will be dreaming about what he might become, not what he is now.
