James Notary Scouting Report & Game Video

Position: RHP
Height/Weight: 6’3”, 210 lbs.
Bats/Throws: R/R
Birthdate: TBD
Hometown: Westminster, Colo.
School: Broomfield HS / TCU
FV (20-80): 50 (RH High-Leverage Relief)
MLB ETA: 2024

Dates Observed: June 21, 2018

Team/Organization: Santa Barbara Foresters (California Collegiate League)
League/Level: College Summer Baseball
Scouting Notes: Decent physical size; lean through his frame with room to add weight and produce more explosiveness to the plate in future. High three-quarters/nearly overhand look with minimal pitch life, particularly on his fastball. OK downward plane, particularly when commanded down in the zone to start; struggled at points with command, but control OK overall, fits bullpen role in that regard … Fastball 85-90 in mid-June look; changeup 78-81, curveball 76-78; 1.29 – 1.35 to home with runner on first. Appears to hold a circle changeup grip in his hand before the sign; switches off it (or fakes to keep it) after receiving sign … Fastball command iffy, velo fluctuated; landing point inconsistent with front foot moving some after landing; lands hard on heel at times; mechanical issues altering release point and power behind the pitch right now, but clear arm strength on the fastball if he can streamline mechanics and command … Surprising, encouraging depth to changeup; some nice tumble there, real downward action that’ll get it off bats and make LHH in particular look bad thanks to good arm speed can really sell it … Curveball is OK for his age/level, but needs some work; larger, earlier break than ideal without snappy late life, but OK depth and might work a little bit to draw weak contact. Likely needs to throw curve a good bit harder, experiment with manipulation for break, maybe even transition to a power slider … Overall, James Notary is about where he should be entering his sophomore season at TCU; stuff and strength should inevitably improve over the next few years, and if they do at his size, it’s easy to imagine James Notary as a late-round relief arm selected in the MLB Draft in 2020 or 2021.
