Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 55 | Slider: 50 | Control: 45 | Overall: 40

Gillies bounced between the rotation and the bullpen during his first three years at Arizona State before carving out a role as a full-time reliever in 2015 and becoming a 10th-round pick of the Mariners in June. He split his first full season between the Midwest League, where he was a midseason All-Star, and the California League, and then spent all of '17 pitching out of the bullpen for Double-A Arkansas. Among Texas League relievers, Gillies ranked fifth in opponent average (.231) and 11th in appearances (39). Gillies represented Seattle in the Arizona Fall League and then began '18 back with Arkansas before advancing to Triple-A in May.

A tall and physical right-hander, Gillies employs a clean delivery with short arm action on the backside that causes his 92-94 mph four-seam fastball to jump on opposing hitters. His slider represents a second average-or-better offering, registering at 82-83 mph with late, hard sweeping action. Gillies demonstrates confidence and feel for locating both pitches, especially the slider, though his current command profile leaves something to be desired.

Gillies experienced a dip in his strikeout rate with the move up to the Texas League, but the right-hander still showed the ability to miss bats on both sides of the plate with his fastball-slider combo. That quality, as well as better fastball command, could lead to a seventh-inning role at the highest level.
