Scouting Report

Ginn has one of the best arms in this year's draft class, having lit up radar guns with a 93-99 mph fastball with well above-average life. The Mississippi State signee has done a good job this year of cleaning up his delivery, as he's more flowing and fluid after being stiffer in the past. He also hides the ball well in his delivery, which makes it even harder to hit his excellent fastball. He throws both a slider and curveball but the two blend together. One or the other should end up as a plus pitch, but right now it's his power curve that is the better of the two as it presently flashes plus. When he throws his changeup between innings in warm-ups, it looks to be potentially average, but he's yet to need to throw it against Louisiana high school hitters. Ginn's biggest hurdles are his body and the fact that scouts have rarely seen him work longer than four or five innings. He was even used as a reliever early in the season at Brandon (Miss.) High, as his coach wanted to give him a chance to break the state saves record. He's listed at 6-foot-2, but is probably closer to 6-foot and he's already physically mature. He could move quickly through the minors, although there's a lot of debate whether it will ultimately mean he pitches the first through fifth innings or in the eighth or ninth.
