Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Slider: 60 | Control: 40 | Overall: 45

Deetz hurt his elbow in summer ball before his high school senior season, had Tommy John surgery and redshirted for a year at Northeastern Oklahoma JC before returning to the mound in 2014. His fastball hit 98 mph that spring, prompting the Astros to draft him in the 11th round, and he bounced between the rotation and bullpen in his first four years as a pro. He drew an 80-game suspension in January 2018 after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance, excelled as a full-time reliever after his return and made his big league debut in September.

Deetz worked mostly as a tandem starter before he reached Triple-A, where he got hit hard taking a normal turn in a rotation. As a starter, he operated with a low-90s fastball that peaked at 95 mph and a low-80s slider with a big break. His stuff kicked up when he took a relief role, with his heater parking at 94-97 mph and reaching 99 mph while his slider sat in the mid-80s with sharper break.

After struggling to develop a changeup, Deetz focused on his two main pitches once he shifted to the bullpen. While his fastball and slider can be overpowering in short stints, he still has yet to prove he can control and command them on a consistent basis. He has 59 walks in 79 Triple-A innings and will have to locate his pitches better to find a role in Houston.
