Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Curveball: 45 | Slider: 55 | Changeup: 45 | Control: 45 | Overall: 45

Stewart was a two-sport star in high school, one who could have headed to Texas A&M as a quarterback, but was signed away from doing so when the Twins took him No. 4 overall in the 2013 Draft. While things haven't been all bad -- he did reach Triple-A for the first time in 2017 -- it hasn't gone quite as well as planned. The Twins left him unprotected from the Rule 5 Draft this offseason and he went undrafted.

The hope had been that Stewart, as he focused on pitching only and matured, would find increased velocity and be a power-type frontline starter. He has both a four- and two-seamer, with the former topping out at around 95 mph and the other thrown with decent sink in the low 90s. He's been a groundball pitcher for much of his career, but he gets too reliant on the two-seamer at times. That's not just in relation to his four-seam fastball, but also in terms of how he incorporates his other pitches, a slider that can be above-average and fringy curveball and changeup.

As Stewart has struggled, invariable rumors of him returning to football have cropped up. He's committed to baseball and the Twins are hoping they can help him maximize all of his pitches and still reach his potential as a big league starter.
