Fastball
Fastball 45 45 90-93 94 Downhill plane; gets some tail and occasional sink to the arm side. Mixes in some cut w/late dart. Works in under hands of LHH. Really flattens out up in the zone; tries to go up with purpose, change eye level of hitters; will rush arm at times, very inconsistent command

Curveball
Curveball 40 45 74-76 77 12-to-6 breaker with hump; starts early, casts out a bit. Can throw it for strikes and the arm action plays it up slightly, but gradual action overall. Showed a few at fringe average in the 3rd inning with tighter rotation for put-away, but struggles to repeat. Could get to fringe average in short stints.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 45 45 85-88 88 Firm, two-seam type action; his go-to secondary, confidence with it. Showed occasional dive and arm action plays up. Will leave up in zone; inconsistent feel makes usability a concern.

Overall Summary
Thick, mature-bodied RHP with some deception in the delivery that plays up fringy stuff. Tries to work down in the zone with a three-pitch mix and will execute a plan for stretches, but erratic command limits his pitchability. The changeup is his best secondary, and angle and sink on the fastball make him effective down in the zone; he looks to get ground balls and has some poise, but margin for error is small and the command is too inconsistent to be effective multiple times through a lineup. Value in the ground-ball rate; swingman at Double-A and Triple-A levels.
