Gannon, a San Diego State signee, is similar to Conor Baits--a bid-bodied righthander with some arm strength. Like Baits, the 6-foot-5, 195-pound Gannon hasn't distinguished himself this spring, but he has flashed potential. Gannon works in the 87-90 range, bumping 91, with some run. His 73-78 mph curveball has promising downer action at times and is slurvy at others, but the pitch is improving and could become an average offering. He also has a serviceable changeup that needs improvement. Scouts question Gannon's delivery, which features a high front side, a short stride, a lack of extension out front and some recoil. His stuff could jump if he improves his mechanics.
