Moscot transferred to Pepperdine from Cuesta (Calif.) JC after his freshman year and found a home in the weekend rotation as a sophomore. After tying for the Cape Cod League lead in strikeouts last summer, Moscot carried his momentum over into this spring, going 4-5, 3.39 with 79 strikeouts and 18 walks through 90 innings as the Waves' Friday starter. Moscot is a lanky 6-foot-4, 210-pound strike-thrower with good feel for pitching. Some scouts are turned off by the head whack and slight recoil in his delivery, but the funkiness adds deception, and he has proven durable so far in his career. Moscot pitches with an average fastball with decent sink in the 88-91 mph range, bumping 92 early in games and touching 94 at his best this spring. He throws both an average changeup and a split-finger with some drop, though the two pitches can be difficult to tell apart. His slider is average and can be an out pitch when it's on. His solid stuff across the board, competitiveness and command give him a chance to be a back-of-the-rotation starter in the big leagues.
