2016 Stohs Prospect Handbook Profile: The Twins believe that Jay can make a successful transition into a starting role in pro baseball. As the sixth overall pick, one would hope so. Jay certainly has the stuff, the makeup and pitch mix to attempt it. Despite being just 6-1 and 185 pounds, Jay has a big arm. The left-hander has a fastball that sits between 92 and 95, but out of the bullpen, he has topped out at 98. He has both a slider, which is sharp and sits in the low-80s, and a curveball in the mid-70s. He also throws a very good changeup. A four-pitch mix with good velocity and movement is certainly encouraging. He has shown the ability to miss bats and has good control.
