The 6-foot-6, 260-pound righty has impressive stuff, but hasn’t spent a lot of time on the mound in his collegiate career between stops at Dartmouth, the Cape Cod League, the Northwoods League and Kansas State. Seymour has a fastball that has been up to 99 mph, he’s flashed a plus slider at 90, and he has a good changeup but he hasn’t often been able to get to his secondaries. The fastball has generic life and doesn’t play to the velocity and he doesn’t have a ton of control so he’s always behind in counts without an opportunity to spin his breaking ball or use his changeup. Some believe he might be better off throwing sinkers rather than his four-seamer, but he’s a big guy with good stuff who should get a chance. There are questions about his ability to start but there aren’t many pitchers who throw as hard with the slider he has. Seymour is inexperienced and hasn’t had success getting outs, but the stuff is worth a look.
