Colby Blueberg Scouting Report & Game Video
Dates Observed: June 9, 2018
Team/Organization: Lake Elsinore Storm (San Diego Padres)
League/Level: California League (High-A)
Scouting Notes: Undersized; not a great frame; no projection/physical upside there. Three-quarters release, some mild deception/quirkiness with quick arm-action and distracting glove/front-hand action at hand break. Deep repertoire with some pitchability; knows how to get hitters out with some ability to move up/down with full repertoire; at his best, particularly tough at-bat for RHH, though far from overpowering/dominant … Four-seam fastball 89-93, two-seamer 87-91, changeup 78-82, slider 77-82. Nothing grading out above-average, but sequences well, command OK, mixes speed and pitches a little bit, even if he draws a lot of contact for working in a high-leverage bullpen role right now … Veteran; four-time Cal Leaguer by 2018; organizational depth at this point, maybe a modest shot at long relief/low-leverage bullpen situations, but times’s running out … Credit where credit is due — Colby Blueberg does have a little bit of pitchability, and he knows how to sequence hitters and get outs with a veteran presence who understands the game relative to this level, but below-average stuff across the board and lack of high-level experience will make things tough moving forward.
