Quick Scouting Report Update: After a couple of forgettable years in Sarasota, Stauffer headed north and broke out in 2019. He’s a skyscraper at 6′ 7″ tall and he uses all of it on the mound. The raw stuff isn’t particularly impressive, but everything plays up due to his over the top release and big time extension. His fastball is 92-95mph at it’s best, but will drop to 88-92 in longer outings. The curveball has a great 12-6 shape, but lacks sharp bite, it’s better when thrown harder. He’ll flash a quality changeup but it lacks consistency. Command is well below average currently and control can abandon him at times as well.
There’s an extreme risk profile here, but there is some upside and decent ceiling.
