If you needed to win a game with one pitcher at the PG National, Encinas might be the guy to put out on the hill. He will fight the 6-0 right hander cliché this year and beyond and there’s nothing he can do about that, but it’s hard to debate his two present average to plus pitches, his athletic ability and his competitiveness. Encinas has multi-part delivery that adds significant deception to his pitches but that doesn’t detract apparently to his command because he’s able to repeat and adapt it. Encinas turns his back on the hitter, hesitates at the top, gives a leg flex as a timer for his arm stroke and will wheel and fire from different arm angles. The hitter sees lots of Encinas, lots of motion and very little of the ball. Encinas showed two different fastballs, a 89-91 heater that he used with precision down in the zone and an 88 mph pitch that he dropped down to low ¾’s to sidearm, got some running action on and got hitter’s front sides real loose. Encinas’ breaking ball is a 76 mph hard curveball that has some sharpness and a big, sweeping break. He didn’t show a slider or a change up, but given his athletic ability and feel for pitching, it probably wouldn’t be especially difficult for him to add those pitches as the need arises. Anthony can hit and play the outfield enough to be considered a prospect as a position player as well. On the mound he's a potential college all american. Anthony does well in the class room too.
