Personal

Sebastian can either start or relieve.  As a reliever, he has been both a setup man and a closer.  He has a variety of pitches, with a slider (low to mid-80s velocity in mph) being his best pitch.   In addition, he can play the outfield, which makes him a versatile addition to a club’s roster. He gets good reads on balls hit to the outfield, has the speed to track down balls hit into the gaps, and possesses a good throwing arm. As a hitter, he hits from both sides of the plate with good power and the ability to hit off-speed pitches.

Sebastian is the type who is always looking to add value to the team, whether on or off the field.  He is a high-energy player, very competitive, and a supportive teammate who works to keep the team engaged and motivated.  He is the type who will come early and stay late to put in the extra work needed to continually improve his game.

He has youth coaching experience and would be interested in working with a club’s coaching staff.

He continues to work out and train on a regular basis to remain in top condition.
