Rookie Davis, Yankees, RHSP
Davis sports a simple delivery that is easy to repeat without much issue. His best pitch is his fastball which will sit in the 91-93 range, while touching 95, with some armside run. When he's at his best he's able to locate this pitch on both sides of the plate. Davis also has the making of a change up. The pitch sits in the 82-84 range with some fade action, but you can tell he is still trying to get a feel for it. His third pitch is a loopy curveball that sits in the low to mid 70's. It has some shape, but is more of a show me pitch at the moment. Davis has size (listed as 6'3" 235 lbs) and the makings of 3 pitches, along with velocity which makes believe he's a starter long term.
Phil Walby, Yankees, RHSP
Walby has simple mechanics and a short arm action. It's a repeatable delivery because he's athletic. The athleticism also helps him field his position well. His fastball sat 91-92 and touched 93 though he didn't have great command of it and it got barrelled quite a bit. He also flashed a curveball in the 76-78 ranges that had a good 12-to-6 shape. I only saw two innings of Walby and only saw these two pitches, but he could be a guy to keep an eye on.
Caleb Smith, Yankees, LHSP
Smith hooked me in right away because he started the first batter he faced with two off-speed pitches. You don't see that too often in the low minors. His fastball was 90-92 and touched 93 and also had a ton of armside run. He complimented this with a low 80's change that had some downward movement as well as some fade. To top it off, he has a short breaking slider that sits 82-83. The pitch is tight and he can drop it off the plate to get a whiff or he can go front or back door with it. Smith is athletic which allows him to repeat his mechanics and he's also a fast worker, something that I really like. My one knock on him is that he tends to open up his front should too early at times which forces his arm to kind drag behind. I was impressed with this year's 12th rounder and he's definitely one to keep an eye on.
Andury Acevedo, Yankees, RHRP
Acevedo is an infielder-turned-pitcher who is still learning how to pitch, but he has a live arm. He had a side arm slot and sits 92-94 (and touches 95) with the heater that has a lot of natural tail due to his slot. It has the potential to be a really good pitch, if only he could command. He made one very nice pitch in particular to right-handed hitter where he started the heater on the inside corner and it tailed off the plate and he got the whiff. However, since he can't consistently hit the glove, he tends to get barrelled up a bit. His other pitch is a curveball that doesn't really have much shape and still needs a lot of work. Acevedo is going to be 23 in the next couple of months, but since he's still new to pitching and he has a live arm, he's interesting.
