Scouting Report

Another towering right-hander in this draft class, Traver seems to be relatively comfortable with his delivery. He's physically mature, but still could pack on some pounds over the years as he gets stronger. He produces easy velocity, working at 90-92 mph consistently. As far as movement, Traver gets some occasional arm side running action. He uses his changeup sparsely at 81-83 mph, but his slider shows good potential. His slider comes in at 81-83 mph and flashes above average potential.
