Fastball Value
Overall Fastball Value 45 55 Don't think he'll pitch in the upper-90s as a starter; still could have solid-avg FB and induce weak contact because of movement.

Fastball Velocity 50 50 92 90-95 Showed more velo early in career but lean frame has backed up under every-fifth-day grind. Works comfortable low-90s w/ touches of 94-95. Think he only gets back to upper-90s airing it out in short stints.

Fastball Movement
Fastball Movement 50 55 Very lively FB w/ above-avg run and sink; plane-changer when he's in the lower-third.

Fastball Command
Fastball Command 40 50 Fair strikes but loose within the zone; still learning to stay away from center-plate; athleticism+delivery here to project up on command.

Curveball
Curveball 50 55 79 77-81 Best pitch, separator. Sharp slurve w/ long three-quarters slant and flashes of hard, two-plane finish. Gets RHH to chase down+out of the zone.

Slider
Slider 40 45 83 82-84 Adds something to slurvy CB to make it more like a true SL. Uses to show another look but shows solid action at times; enough feel for spin to develop into a workable second breaker.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 45 50 85 84-87 Tunnels well off FB, best ones show late w/ hard, split-like finish down in the zone. Rapidly improving feel for the pitch and learning when to use it.

Control
Control 40 50 Shows pitchability and polished strikes w/ off-speed in best sequences, though looser as outings progress. Has work left to do but ingredients here to project up on control. Cold seemed to bother him, still learning to pitch through the elements and general adversity.

Overall Summary
Four-pitch RHP w/ avg-to-solid arsenal across the board. Ceiling of mid-rotation SP on the strength of advanced secondary and feel to mix pitches. Some concern about velo and overall stuff trending down on a leaner-bodied frame. Still definitely see a Major League future for him.
