Physical Description
Medium frame, muscular/boxy build, country strong throughout.
Mechanical Notes
Semi-windup w/ moderate effort, struggles to repeat at present but projects to iron it out. Shoulder tilt and inverted-w arm-circle cause occasional arm drag and off-line finishes. H3/4 slot.

Control

Overall Summary
Saw him battle through a tough start without his best stuff. Has back-rotation potential if he can iron out mechanics and improve changeup.
