arizona diamondbacks baseball prospects news 1 kevin ginkel scouting report

Organization: Arizona Diamondbacks
Height/Weight: 6’4”, 210 lbs.
Bats/Throws: R/R
Age/DOB: 24 (March 24, 1994)
Acquired/Hometown: Round 22 (2016); San Diego, CA (Arizona)

May 22, 2018 — Visalia Rawhide (High-A, California League)
Good size; sturdy, with strength and power through lower half; good explosiveness in leg drive off the rubber to the plate. High three-quarters release with some plane on his stuff. Short-stint, high-adrenaline power relief profile; max effort guy; like a bull in a china shop without much feel/nuance to his stuff besides going hard-hard right at hitters … Fastball sits 94-96, fairly straight with occasional arm-side life; pairs it with an 85-87 slider and an 82-83 change. Slider is well ahead of changeup as secondary pitch; no real feel for change, but slider will come and go with occasional touch. Wants to throw the fastball above all; will challenge hitters, but needs just a little bit more velocity to really do it … No-nonsense, simple guy: power arm who can blow it out a little bit in short stints. Needs better slider feel with break manipulation to really turn the corner as a late-inning arm against better hitters down the road, but there’s no question Kevin Ginkel is another of many hard-throwing Arizona Diamondbacks prospects who could get a shot at late-inning relief one day.
