Scouting Casey Coleman

23 year old RHP Casey Coleman comes from a great pitching family (both his grandfather and father were major leaguers), and he made his major league debut last August. He's appeared in 19 games (15 starts), and is 6-5 with a 4.83 ERA and 1.60 WHIP. He has never faced the Mets in his brief career.

This year he's 2-3, with a 6.5 K/9 rate, and 6.5 BB/9 Rate. THAT'S HARD TO DO. Because of the high walk rate, his WHIP is 1.89 and his ERA is 6.03. His swing and miss % is 5.7%, and he only throws 1st pitch strike 47%.

Coleman's stuff = not all that exciting. 88-92 fastball, good changeup, workable slider/cutter and curveball. His two best pitches are his curve and change up, and he throws them both > 16% of his pitch (each), with his fastball being thrown > 60%.

His ceiling is a fifth starter or long reliever.
