PG Grade: 8.5
R. David Francis is a 6-1, 190 lb senior right handed pitcher from Canada with a mature body and thick chest. He throws from a high 3/4's release point with a calm, under control type of delivery, a high leg raise and a stiff front side to throw against on landing. Francis' fastball topped out at 89 mph from a short, quick arm stroke and he'll vary the speed on it pretty consistently, including turning over a 2-seamer at 81-83 that has pretty good life. His fastball is pretty straight at the higher velocities. Francis' curveball was mostly 67-69 mph. He gets a big downer break on the pitch but drops his elbow some, which takes velocity and power from the pitch. He tried a couple of change ups but this pitch is still in its developmental stages. Overall, Francis is a young power pitcher with a very strong arm who could settle in as a consistent low 90's type of pitcher.
