Scouting Update/Video: Jon Moscot, RHP, Pepperdine (2012 Draft)

By
May 11, 2012

Ths guy is a breaking ball away from being a poor man’s Dan Haren. He’s got average major league fastball velocity with plus fastball control, which alone will give him a shot to succeed in the big leagues. He’s got an improved change-up he uses well. You can get to the big leagues and get paid to do that, so make a run for it.

Scouting Video: Brian Humphries, OF, Pepperdine (2011 Draft)

By
May 29, 2011

Brian Humphries didn’t sign with the Red Sox out of high school and has had a normal college career at Pepperdine. A lot of people will like the loose and easy left-handed stroke while others will worry that he doesn’t give himself enough of a trigger to survive.

Scouting Report: Scott Frazier, RHP, Upland (CA) HS (2010 Draft)

By
June 7, 2010

Scott Frazier found the velocity bump from the 90-91 range in the summer and the fall to 90-93 this spring. Paired with his 6-4 height and the makings of a frame some teams think has more power yet in store and you can understand why someone will take a flyer on him.

Cole Cook, a guy I have fond memories of seeing against D’Arby Myers in high school. Now it’s Cook’s turn to get on the bus.

Scouting Update: Scott Frazier, RHP, Upland (CA) HS (2010 Draft)

I’ve said before that Scott Frazier represents the kind of pitcher you take a flyer on because you like his size, think there’s more in the arm, and then let minor league pitching coaches train him. It’s a right-handed do-it-yourself kit.

Scouting Update: Scott Frazier, RHP, Upland (CA) HS (2010 Draft)

By
April 27, 2010

Scott Frazier is the classic right-handed build-it-yourself potential major league right-hander. In this recent look, he was coming off an outing in which he threw the ball very well. He came back on short rest and pitched with a sore groin in the rain, so this wasn’t Frazier at his best and is a look that has to be taken with a grain of salt. You do have to give the guy credit for strapping it on and trying to make it work.

Right-hander Cody Buckel struck out 10, walked one, hit 93 several times, and tied up left-handed hitting prospect Christian Yelich in a seven-inning no-hitter at Westlake High Tuesday.

The scouting sheet wasn’t nearly as close as the score sheet when Long Beach State right-hander Jake Thompson beat Pepperdine right-hander Cole Cook 2-1 in a game between two of Southern California ’s best 2010 collegiate right-handed MLB draft pitching prospects Friday night at Blair Field in Long Beach.

Scouting Video: Scott Frazier, RHP, Upland (CA) HS (2010 Draft)

Scott Frazier, a right-handed pitcher from Upland, committed to Pepperdine University during the early-signing period. It would seem to be a good fit for Frazier and for Pepperdine, which hasn’t been afraid to go old school in the past and use guys with the arm/bat combo on the bump and in the box.

Two examples spring to mind, most famously Dan Haren, and more recently, A’s minor leaguer Steve Kleen.

Here’s a look at Frazier on the mound and then we’ll break him down.
