Fastball Value
Overall Fastball Value 45 50 FB can be effective in rotation if command and contact management iron out.

Fastball Velocity 45 45 90-91 88-93 Reaches back for 92-93 on best bolts, but won't be overpowering. Playable low-90s velo aided by movement and ability to fill the zone.

Fastball Movement 55 55 Sneaky FB, plays above velocity and gets on hitters quickly up in the zone. Lively ride w/ occasional armside run.

Fastball Command
Fastball Command 45 50 Consistent strikes w/ FB, though more control than command. FB life helps him be effective elevating up in the zone but struggles to manage contact and induce ground balls. Sharpening command will be key to filling back-rotation ceiling.

Curveball
Curveball 50 50 74 73-75 Spike CB w/ long 12-to-6 depth. Slow, loopy action plays because it freezes hitters w/ surprise separation. Funky pitch that works for him, best off-speed.

Slider
Slider 45 45 85 83-88 Cutter/slider variant, differing action depending on firmness. Short, one-plane tilt at 87-88, more depth in low-80s.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 40 45 83 82-84 Gets separation, but drops under it at times and straightens out. Can be a usable third speed but needs to get more consistent.

Control
Control 45 50 Ability to land deep four-pitch mix for strikes will get him to the big leagues. Aggressive in the zone w/ FB and CB, comes right at hitters and won't walk many. Will need to show CH more to turn over ML lineups and face LHH.

Overall Summary
Crafty RHP who gets the most out of his stuff w/ long track record of success. Upside of #5 SP if command and changeup get more consistent. Versatile, high-floor arm who could fit as a swingman/spot-starter type if he falls short of ceiling.
