Physical Description
Tall and lean, broad shoulders, v-torso, room to fill out. Plus athleticism aids ability to project across the board.
Mechanical Notes
Semi-windup, tall leg kick, low-maintenance operation w/ on-line finish. Long, full arm-circle, unorthodox early hand break causes issues w/ control and command, will improve location w/ adjustment to delivery's timing. Fast, whippy arm-stroke, 3/4 slot.

Fastball Value
Overall Fastball Value 45 60 Command has a ways to go, but young enough to correct. Could have a dominant FB at maturity, lively mid-90s from LH side.

Fastball Command
Fastball Command 30 50 Control over command when FB finds the zone. A few mechanical tweaks away from improving command, and young/athletic enough to do so.

Control
Control 40 50 FB-heavy approach, needs to mix more off-speed. More of a thower than pitcher at present but showed enthusing ability to make adjustments. Athleticism is here to project forward.

Overall Summary
Very high-ceiling, ingredients of power mid-rotation SP. Delivery/control/command will need to refine; age/proximity add risk.
