Shawn Tolleson Scouting Report

Tolleson threw one inning in the Rangers B game today and I was impressed with what I saw:

Consistent delivery which he repeats well, hides ball well, fastball a bit too straight, but good velocity plus good deception in his delivery make it a major league average pitch with the ability to be a plus pitch. Sharp, late breaking slider that could also become a plus pitch for him. Below average change.

Tolleson flashed late-inning potential, and I could see him having two plus pitches (fastball and slider) with a little more development. Definite breakout candidate, and at age 26, if it is ever going to happen, it needs to soon.
