Sborz has a special arm. He throws a heavy fastball in the 93-95 mph range and maintains his velocity deep into games. His slider is another plus offering, at 79-81 with sharp movement. He has a big, strong frame at 6-foot-4 and 200 pounds with wide shoulders to build on, and if he can keep his arm slot consistent Sborz could push 100 mph one day. His delivery has been violent but he refined his mechanics as the season wore on. A personal trainer has also helped Sborz get more out of his body. He still needs to develop a changeup if he wants to remain a starter, though his stuff and makeup are ideal for a closing role. There are some questions with Sborz involving off-the-field issues, but if everything falls into place his ceiling is higher than Tim Stauffer's.
