Physical Description
XL frame w/ broad features throughout. Missed all of 2019 w/ back injury.
Mechanical Notes
NWU, stretch all; shoulder tilt w/ inverted-w strain at foot strike; moderate tilt to clear arm through H3/4 slot; finishes without much effort, though balance issues often pull slightly off-line. Inconsistent mechanics and repeatability hinder control/command/off-speed execution.

Fastball Movement
Fastball Movement 45 45 Fairly straight FB w/ hint of cut through the zone at times. Occasional hop+ride when elevated and extended; natural angle from height when working down, but rarely does so.

Fastball Command
Fastball Command 40 40 Sprays the zone w/ below-avg command; especially wild in AFL as he builds back from a lost season due to injury.

Overall Summary
Getting AFL innings after missing 2019 w/ injury; size and velo will keep him around the big leagues, though lacks control/off-speed for full-time relief role; provides 4A/callup value getting optioned up and down as upper-level 'pen depth.
