RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Ball was Boston's first-round draft pick in 2013 out of New Castle High School in Indiana, and was immediately placed with the organization's rookie team in the Gulf Coast League. He started five games, but is being brought along slowly and pitched just seven innings. At 6-foot-6 and 190 pounds, his thin frame has lots of space to fill out. As Ball matures physically, the velocity of his low-90s fastball will increase. His changeup has plus potential, while his curveball, which he didn't start throwing until his junior year, showed improvement as a senior. His mechanics, something to watch with tall pitchers, are considered smooth, and there are not a lot of miles on the arm. Most likely, he'll remain at the rookie level until he's placed at short-season Lowell, though a full-season assignment to Low-A Greenville is a strong possibility.
