Focus Area
Comments
Fastball:Ross's fastball is plus at times. He touches 92 mph and pitches comfortably at 90.
Fastball movement:Like most lefties, he does have good life on his fastball.
Slider:It's a quick little slider. It's just OK and needs some work.
Changeup:It grades out as close to average.
Control:He can throw all of his pitches for strikes pretty well.
Poise:He is an excellent competitor and gets the most out of his stuff.
Physical Description:Ross is a compact, athletic lefty with a quick arm.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:Above-average to plus fastball from left side; competitive nature, excellent athlete.
Weaknesses:His secondary stuff is a little behind the fastball, but it should eventually be average.
Summary:Ross is a very intriguing high school lefty who is considered to be one of the better prep southpaws in the Draft class. With a fastball that's plus at times, the possibility of two decent secondary offerings, good command and outstanding competitiveness, he's the type of pitcher who always gets more out of his stuff than others might. He may not have a ton of projection, but he's already pretty good.
