Scouting Report

Scouting grades:Fastball: 45 | Curveball: 60 | Changeup: 45 | Control: 50 | Overall: 40

Hall led all Division I pitchers in strikeouts as a Missouri State junior in 2015, leading to his selection in the sixth round of that June's Draft. Given his lack of velocity and premium stuff, few predicted he'd be able to maintain those kinds of numbers as a pro. Sure enough, he finished in the top two in ERA and strikeouts in the organization in back-to-back years (2016-17). The Tigers moved Hall to the bullpen in 2018, only to move him back to the rotation when he reached Triple-A in July. Expanded rosters in September led to Hall's first callup, and with it a return to the bullpen.

Hall's fastball is fringy, at best, barely scraping 90 mph with little movement. His curveball, on the other hand, might be the best in the system. He can really spin it and will throw it at any point in the count, which, in turn, allows his fastball to play up a bit. He can also mix in an effective changeup at times. Hall's ability to pitch off his curve has long been one of his strengths, but without much in the way of velocity, that approach has the potential to be exploited by good hitters.

As indicated by his struggles during his brief time in the Majors, Hall will have to be able to have sharper overall command to continue having the success he's had thus far.
