Physical Description
Short, muscular frame. Filled out.
Mechanical Notes
Herky-jerky SWU that has both effort and natural deception. Turns away at the top, high+closed front side through drive hides the ball. Plunged, off-line arm-circle; wrist claw in the back; whippy H3/4 stroke. Delivery limits command as SP but could help him in relief.

Slider
Slider 40 45 82 81-84 Short SL w/ moderate depth, consistent action. Playable SL, though not a bat-misser.

Control
Control 40 40 Doesn't have a CH, struggles to miss bats as SP or work away from LHH. Mixes FB/CB as two main pitches, wrinkling SL for third look; lands breaking stuff but up in the zone. Lack of pitchability and arsenal depth will hurt him less facing lineups once.

Overall Summary
Short RHP w/ arm-strength and feel for spin from effortful operation. Better bullpen fit, where FB/breaking ball mix can play up. Projects as upper-level 'pen depth; 4A upside w/ chance to get cups of coffee in low-leverage middle relief role. Follow grade.
