Physical Description
XL frame, prototype pitching build. Broad shoulders, strong core and lower-half, plenty of room left to fill out. Future workhorse.
Mechanical Notes
Moderate effort through SWU, projects to clean up a bit as he gets stronger. Slight turn away at the top; compact arm-circle; tilts to clear arm through H3/4 slot.

Slider
Slider 30 40 86 84-86 Mixes a true SL for second look at breaking ball. Hard spinner, usually a cement mixer lacking depth. Could develop into a wrinkle.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 30 40 87 85-87 Crude offering, early stages. Too firm w/ short one-plane tail, acts like a 2sm and speeds up bats. Will need a third speed to combat LHH as SP.

Control
Control 30 45 Intense competitor, focused mound presence. FB/CB two main pitches, wrinkles SL and CH. More strikes w/ FB than secondary. Pitchability is raw and needs pro reps.

Overall Summary
Lottery ticket; max-projection RHP w/ size and flashes of FB+CB. Command, pitchability, arsenal depth all take dreaming but has interesting tools to work with.
