I started my first job in baseball today. I'm now the pitching coach for the Kingsborough Community College baseball team. One of my first assignments is to bring around this one kid. He reminds me of someone, I just can't pin it down. I need some of your help to jog my memory, or steer me in another good direction.
One thing I am going to do is show him tape of guys that he can learn from. Here's my scouting report after about 4 batters. From my description, tell me which major leaguer this reminds you of:
-Straight over-the-top arm action
-Good downward plane on the fastball
The first guy that came to mind for me was John Garland... but that can't be the best I can come up with, can it?
