|There were high hopes for Gibbs this season with his arm strength and
6-foot-4, 215-pound frame. But Gibbs has struggled, going 3-4, 7.81 with 52 strikeouts and 38 walks in 55 innings. He also hit nine batters and threw 19 wild pitches. He sits 90-92 mph with ease and can get up to the mid 90s, but his fastball is a true pitch and he gets behind in the count a lot. His slider and changeup are average, but he tends to nibble too much and needs to pitch with more confidence.
|While his teammate Jeff Gibbs has the arm strength and size of a righthanded prospect, Perakslis was the one that had better results for Maine. He's solidly built at 6-foot-1, 185 pounds, and has a solid fastball that gets up to 93. He didn't show a true breaking ball this year, but that may have been hampered by a blister he had this spring. His changeup is average.
