What kind of stuff does he throw ?

 

He has a smooth delivery that seems to add to the late hop on his fastball, allowing him to miss bats. He pitches at 88-90 mph and tops out at 93 mph, sort of like another lefty with above-average deception, Dontrelle Willis. Bostick needs to trust his offspeed stuff more and not get so fastball-happy, especially when he’s in trouble. He has shown a plus curveball at times but his changeup needs work. Repeating his delivery is another area that requires improvement.

Sounds good, thanks. Love the idea of having another solid lefty in the bullpen.
