Mechanical Notes
Stretch only, very deceptive, stays closed and hides the ball well. Repeats release point and tunnels his pitches. 3/4 slot.

Splitter
Splitter 55 55 83-84 82-84 Best off-speed, saves for late in the count, gives him a weapon to work against LHH. Gets separation and keeps from same tunnel as FB, bottom really falls out on best ones.

Overall Summary
Will benefit from some high-minors seasoning, but should be ready to contribute in middle relief role fairly soon. Three-pitch RP who can face RHHs and LHHs.
