Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 55 | Slider: 45 | Changeup: 55 | Control: 45 | Overall: 45

Voth ranked third in strikeouts in the Pac-12 Conference in 2013 at the University of Washington before going to the Nationals in the fifth round that June. He continued to pile up K's early in his pro career, leading the Nationals' system in strikeouts for three straight years (2014-16) while reaching Triple-A Syracuse, though a regression of both his stuff and command in '17 led to a demotion back to Double-A in July. He pitched better in his return to Syracuse early in 2018 and earned his first Major League callup in late April.

Voth sits at 89-92 mph with his fastball but can run it as high as 93-94 mph. He can impart cutting action on the pitch, and his velocity plays up because he hides the ball well. Voth's slider and changeup give him a pair of Major League-caliber secondary offerings, and club officials were particularly impressed with his development of the latter during the 2016 Arizona Fall League.

Pitching with above-average control and command was long viewed as one of Voth's strengths, though he now has much left to prove in that department after struggling in 2017, when he shied away from attacking hitters in the strike zone and spent much of the season nibbling at the corners so as to avoid yielding hard contact. The Nationals are optimistic that Voth will eventually right the ship, and they still view him as a potential back-end starter at the highest level.
