Chris Viall is 6-foot-9 and walked 19 guys in 23 innings this year; he has velocity but poor mechanics and command.

Yeah, and if you're using the "He's 19" logic, then I guess the best report a scout could give us is:


"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

“He’s a high-risk, high-reward pick,” Mets scout Tyler Holmes said. “How many guys are walking the planet are 6-9 and throw 96 or 97 (miles per hour) with ease?”

“He showed a changeup, which he wasn’t asked to throw much, in the bullpen. It was 90 miles per hour,” Holmes said. “I turned to the other guys and said, ‘This guy’s a monster.’”

“The first thing I noticed was his coordination for a guy his size and strength,” Holmes said. “He was able to repeat his delivery. That’s big. A lot of big guys have problems with that. And his velocity jumps out for a guy that size, 95, 96, 99. We were impressed with the uniqueness and ability this guy had.”

Viall is keeping his pending decision close to the vest, reiterating that it was a special day.

This is a guy I really hope they sign. Fully realize 60+% chance he ends up an absolute nobody.

I have a strong feeling this is the type of guy we're excited to sign, sort of forget about, he shows up out of XST for a few bad bullpen innings a year for a few seasons, eventually gets released, plays in some obscure independent league for a few years and at 31 comes back and is dominating AAA for some other franchise and as he approaches a possible call-up, we all go "Didn't we draft him back in the day??"

So Holdzkom 2.0?:) I wouldn't have gone this route but given some of the low upside picks they made (less exciting later HS arms than last year). I'm hopeful they at least bring him in. Odds are he totally flames out but at least he has a "shot" to be something intriguing. This outcome is far more likely than anyone ever to play a game with Thor
