VA/DC Committed Combine

Buchanan is 6-1 with an athletic frame that has some strength present and some projection left to it. He hits from the left side from a balanced athletic stance,  strides on line, smooth load back, quiet relaxed rhythm. Hips rotate completely with some violence and he maintains good lower half balance. Hands stay inside, short and quick to the ball, slightly uphill swing path, showed a pull approach, some strength at contact and extension through the ball, exit velocity was 90. Ran a 7.27 60 yard dash. On the mound, he throws from a three-quarters arm slot, hands break long and arm shortens up during stroke, loose quick action and easy effort to his delivery. Shoulders are slightly uphill and closed, lands slightly closed with a bit of a fall off finish. Delivery creates angle, hides ball well. Fastball was 86-88, touching 89, with downward plane and some late armside run. Curveball had good armspeed and was 73-75 with hard 1/7 break to it, some shape, flashes swing and miss.
