Control
Control 30 40 Max-effort thrower, sprays the zone, loses control completely at times. Won't provide much ML value without improvements to his control.

Overall Summary
Plus raw stuff, FB and SL both have potential to miss bats. Lack of control limits the profile, walks too many to pitch leverage innings. Will fall short of ceiling if he can't throw more strikes.
