Physical Description
Larger than listed weight. XL frame, broad and thick build, very strong but will need to keep body in check.
Mechanical Notes
Semi-windup w/ moderate effort throughout, but strong enough to pitch through it. Delivery looks more synced and repeatable, though still needs minor cleanup. Long arm-circle, strong 3/4 arm-stroke.

Fastball Command
Fastball Command 40 50 Improving command, establishes FB better than early in the year. Sprays within the zone right now, but has a chance to get to avg if he can keep cleaning up delivery.

Slider
Slider 40 50 83 82-85 Slurvy breaing ball has morphed into a true SL as season goes on. Ingredients of avg pitch w/ more development; needs to tighten spin and find more consistent depth.

Control
Control 40 50 Developing pitchability; much more faith in off-speed, sequencing w/ some idea how to mix speeds; got ahead in the count much better this look as delivery has tightened up.

Overall Summary
Improving delivery/control/pitchability, looking more like a starter as season goes on. Ceiling of a durable #4 starter if command can get to average, an innings-eater w/ power sinker. Risk to profile, still requires plenty of projection and refinement.
