Slider
Slider 45 50 83 81-84 Flashes big league slider to RHH at best; tunnels well off FB and shows late; wide, gliding, sweepy tilt. Backs up on him at times, shows enough good ones to project future average.

Splitter
Splitter 50 55 82 81-84 Best pitch, feel for splitter is a separator; gives him something to use against LHH; shows diving two-plane finish down in the zone.

Control
Control 40 45 More strikes w/ FB than off-speed. Can lose delivery and fall out of the zone at times; SL/SPL are chase pitches that expand the zone. Mixes off-speed frequently, confident in secondary, would like to see him pitch off his FB more to set up soft stuff.

Overall Summary
Dominated A-Ball hitters and looks ready for Double-A. Ceiling of three-pitch middle reliever: enough FB to carve out consistent ML role with an off-speed pitch to work against both LHH and RHH.
