Forrest Whitley’s Scouting Report
Whitley already has the ideal size of a major leaguer to go with a quality, sinking fastball and an above average curve/slider. He also has an average changeup that has decent movement and a decent curveball, but he struggles to command those pitches. Whitley mechanics are improving, but they are still a weakness that he will have to improve if he wants to become a big league starter.
- Plus fastball potential
- Above average curveball
- Intimidating presence on the mound
- Needs to improve command
- Needs to improve his mechanics
Fastball: 90-96 MPH

Where could Whitley end up in the draft?
Whitley could go as earlier as eight to the Padres, with his floor being the Blue Jays at 21. The Red Sox at 12 and the Yankees at 18 makes the most sense.
