Curveball
Curveball 40 45 81 79-83 Hard CB flashes bite and depth at best, but mechanical effort is limiting present consistency of the pitch. Not ahead enough in counts to use as 2-strike chase offering.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 40 45 86 86-87 Doesn’t show much, but can mix in firm CH w/ short, late dive to LH. Flashes ingredients of workable pitch w/ more usage.

Overall Summary
Struggling as velo has ticked down without subsequent increase in control/command to offset the difference. Frame, mound presence, flashes of past stuff keep him as a follow grade.
