Scouting Report

Pitching
Penny is pure power, relying mostly on a four-seam fastball that registers regularly in the mid-90s. He also throws a sinking two-seamer in the 92-MPH range and a power curveball that buckles knees. His command has improved as he has matured. He does not appear to be in the best of shape, however, so he can wear down as his pitch count rises.

Defense
Penny does not get off the mound very well and can get a bit flustered on the tougher plays. His move is poor, and he takes a while to unleash the pitch.

Most Known For
Penny won 2 games (Games 1 and 5) for the Marlins in the 2003 World Series against the Yankees.
