Physical Description
Medium frame and body, lacks frame to project a lot, but has present leanness in his body that can add muscle.
Mechanical Notes
Pitches from a SWU, loose arm action with above-avg arm speed, H 3/4 slot. Lacks consistency with delivery, doesn't stay on back leg long enough and has an inconsistent release point which can result in a head whack.

Fastball Value
Overall Fastball Value 45 55 See as a future above-avg overall offering, plays down at present due to inconsistency of delivery and WBA command but should improve with time and reps.

Fastball Velocity 50 60 92-93 90-94 See as a future plus offering, have seen higher velocities in shorter stints during XST, projecting higher due to current youth and added strength gains.

Fastball Movement
Fastball Movement 45 50 Inconsistent with life, has to do with release point struggles, ball can tail/sink on hitters, see as average in the future with more consistency.

Fastball Command
Fastball Command 30 45 Very loose within the zone, inconsistent release point leads to struggles, shows feel for the zone from time to time, FB often in the heart of the zone, won't ever be fine but should improve going forward.

Curveball
Curveball 40 55 76-78 75-78 Primary out pitch, shows hard action and depth from a 11/5-10/4 shape, advanced feel for pitch, struggled to locate in the zone, often times left over the middle, can be an out pitch, see as a future abv-avg offering with more consistency and reps.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 30 50 81-84 81-84 Clear third offering, used only to LHH and is forced into use, gets predictable and telegraphs offering in the zone, lacks feel at present but can throw over for a strike, needs additional reps and feel for improvement.

Control
Control 30 50 Good athlete with inconsistencies in delivery that can be fixed going forward. Has a clean arm action and a low-effort delivery that can help make strides going forward.

Overall Summary
Ceiling of back-rotation starter. 17 year old RHP, future plus FB with advanced feel for a curve that projects as above-avg. Very high risk due to delivery inconsistencies, lack of ideal size, nascent third pitch, and poor feel for the zone at present.
