You’ll notice on the card that it has a brief scouting report. Malone is even better than that sounds, especially if the changeup is developing like he says in our recent article. Malone has hit 99 MPH with his fastball (quoted as 96 up top), while the improvements to his curve were done to get away from the loopy action on his 11-to-5 action, now going with a 12-to-6 action that works better for him due to a sharper break. At 6’4″, 205 pounds, he has a big frame that still has room for growth.
Malone has pitched just eight innings as a pro, getting into a total of seven games over two levels for the Diamondbacks last season. He would have likely pitched in Low-A at some point this season if things went as planned, though Morgantown was a possibility too. He should start the 2021 season in Low-A.
