Changeup:His changeup is just OK ... a work in progress.
Control:His command was bad in the summer, good again early, then bad again.
Poise:Has decent mound presence.
Physical Description:Tuttle isn't all that big, kind of medium sized and isn't overly physical. He uses a low three-quarters delivery.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:Arm strength and good pure stuff, with two above-average to plus pitches and a third that has a chance.
Weaknesses:Command, largely because of delivery problems. He doesn't always keep his direction to the plate.
Summary:There's a lot to like about Tuttle, the North Carolina prep star. He has a great arm with good pure stuff, highlighted by a plus slider and a fastball he can run up to 94 mph. He also has the makings of a changeup. What he doesn't always have is consistent command, affected by a somewhat unorthodox delivery that he has trouble repeating. Still, there's plenty to work with for any team that decides to take him on Draft Day.
