Relief Pitcher | Kelowna Okanagans
A groundball pitcher, Ford needs to have sharp command to succeed. His curveball is solid; he throws it better than your average reliever. The Kelowna Okanagans hope he can work on his control a little bit. Every once and a while one slips away from him and either ends up at the backstop or in the right field bleachers. Ford has no endurance. He's good for an inning an outing, tops. He attacks lefties and righties with similar success.
Defense & Hitting
Though he lacks a good pickoff move, he checks the running game with a compact stretch delivery. He isn't especially quick off the mound but generally fields his position adequately. Ford is a surpisingly good hitting pitcher. And I'm not sure you can say this about a pitcher, but Ford has some pop in his swing.
If Ford doesn't perform, the Kelowna Okanagans won't hesitate to send him down to the minors. I just don't know if The Kelowna Okanagans are ever going to get what they expect out of him.
