Physical Description
XXL frame w/ broad features and long limbs. Intimidating mound presence. Body and overall profile compare to Connor Sadzeck (SEA).
Mechanical Notes
Deliberate SWU he struggles to repeat. Finishes awkward and off-balance, release point and extension vary greatly. Long arm-circle shows on backside; H3/4 slot. Needs to figure out his delivery more in order to improve control and reach his ceiling.

Fastball Value
Overall Fastball Value 45 55 XXL frame and high-90s velo could make FB a quality pitch if command improves even slightly.

Fastball Velocity 70 70 95 93-98 Able to pitch near/at the top of his velo range airing it out from the 'pen. Easy mid-90s w/ routine flashes of 97-98.

Fastball Movement
Fastball Movement 45 50 4sm FB that flattens out over the middle-third. Flashes downhill plane when angled down, late hop when elevated that gets swinging strikes at the letters. Movement projects up if delivery/location find more consistency.

Fastball Command
Fastball Command 30 40 No real command, almost everything is elevated even when throwing strikes. Will need to overpower hitters to get away w/ his spots.

Curveball
Curveball 45 50 79 78-81 Hard CB w/ flashes of sharp down action at best. Feel comes and goes, backs up and gets loose. Enough good ones to project a solid ML breaking pitch.

Slider
Slider 40 50 87 85-88 Relying on SL more in the 'pen than past looks. Good power to it in the upper-80s; flashes a big league pitch w/ sharp, late action at best but wildly inconsistent. Frequently got loose and was a cement mixer. Requires deep projection but ingredients of avg pitch in the tank.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 30 40 84 82-86 Has mostly dropped CH in relief. Still wrinkles to LHH and projects as a show-me at ML level.

Control
Control 30 40 Long history of control troubles, had the yips last year and is still working to get out of his own head. Million dollar question will always be if he throws strikes. Might always be wildly inconsistent but think he's still young enough to figure it out in a 'pen-only role.

Overall Summary
Now a RP-only and fits better there. Has the raw stuff to be a dominant late-inning force, but control/consistency likely always limit him from highest-leverage situations. Ingredients of a power 7th/8th inning setup type but will fall well short of that if he can't throw more strikes.
