Starting Pitcher | PEI Argonauts
Control is his calling card, as he works ahead of hitters without leaving the ball over the middle of the plate. He's got a really stong arm, so he can blow it by you on occasion. His slider is sharp and breaks both horizontally and vertically. Lineweaver's fastball is a tick above average, in the 90-91 MPH range on most nights. Lineweaver also has a decent changeup. His stuff becomes less sharp as he gets into the late innings. He attacks lefties and righties with similar success.
Defense & Hitting
His pickoff move is only fair. He gets off the mound fairly quickly and his throws to first are hard. Lineweaver is a surpisingly good hitting pitcher. And I'm not sure you can say this about a pitcher, but Lineweaver has some pop in his swing.
I really like what this guy brings to the table.
