Fastball Value
Overall Fastball Value 40 55 FB could play above-avg in short stints as velo ticks up and command hurts him less.

Fastball Velocity 55 60 92-93 91-96 Sitting 92-93 right now just trying to get it over. Has 95-96 in the back pocket, could reach upper-90s airing it out from 'pen.

Fastball Movement
Fastball Movement 50 55 Natural extension and downhill angle because of height. Rides up in the zone. Above-avg life if he's able to work near the top of his velo range.

Fastball Command
Fastball Command 30 40 Everything is up even when he's throwing strikes. Poor command won't be as problematic in the 'pen, but always below-avg.

Curveball
Curveball 40 50 80-81 79-82 Hard CB flashes bite and late show at best, though he drops under the pitch and it rolls at times. Showed ingredients of solid breaking ball if he can find more consistent feel.

Slider
Slider 40 45 82-83 82-86 Mixes true SL for second look at breaking ball. Showed as below-avg pitch w/ loose spin and early show. Projects as a fringy/playable wrinkle pitch w/ tighter rotation.

Control
Control 30 40 Loses the zone for long stretches. Has the yips right now, can't throw a strike. Walk numbers could be a bit better facing lineups once, though bouts of wildness likely always come with the profile. Visibly frustrated with himself, bad body language.

Overall Summary
Really struggling this year, deep in his own head, slowing everything down to throw a strike. Too inconsistent to project as a starter, only chance at big league impact is in the 'pen. Could pitch high-leverage innings if velocity returns and he takes to a relief role. Extreme risk, far from a sure thing, will lose prospect status if he doesn't turn a corner soon.
