Slider
Slider 40 45 82-84 84 Short, shallow break. Gets sweepy; will show some 3/4 break with better depth, but inconsistent. Below-average feel. Quick arm, shows fringe-average action when he extends. Chance to get to fringe average.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 40 45 86-88 88 Circle action, gradual fade to arm side. Firm, lacks much depth and separation; similar plane to fastball. Inconsistent arm action, tends to aim it. Below-average feel; still a work in progress. Chance to get to fringe average if he can repeat on a more consistent basis.

Overall Summary
Big-bodied RHRP with a plus fastball who doesn't walk guys and gets ground balls, but has below-average secondary and inconsistent command in the zone. Loose, quick arm plays up the slider some; will generate some soft contact when he locates it. Overall, the arm works well and he is aggressive in the zone, but lacks a true out pitch and struggles to repeat. Will get exposed multiple times through a lineup. Pitch-to-contact type guy and the stuff plays when down in the zone, but pitchability will limit him to a bullpen role. Can see more success in shorter stints where he can just pound the fastball down in zone and use a serviceable slider as as a wrinkle. Would need to show a far more consistent slider and develop the changeup as a third pitch to have value in a rotation.
