Slider
Slider 30 40 77-80 82 Loose, slurvy; has some feel; lacks bite. Will use vs. RHH and LHH. Showed a couple good ones down/in vs. RHH; may get a tick better if he can get out front more consistently.

Overall Summary
Big-bodied LHP who throws strikes and has some feel for pitching. Three-pitch mix; has a plan and tries to move the fastball around, but inconsistent execution. Smooth mechanics and can repeat delivery, but cuts off out front and has some trouble getting to glove side consistently. Breaking ball is loose, slurvy, and lacks bite, but locates it, and will use it to both sides. Locates his below-average changeup to arm side. Works quick and works ahead; Gets some ground balls, but lacks any swing-and-miss stuff; has below-average command in the zone and gets very hittable. More athletic than the body lets on, can see command coming up slightly, but body already blowing out and not sure it will hold up. Don't see potential for large jump in the quality of his stuff.
