Medium frame, has added good strength through core and legs since signing, still projects to fill out some.
Mechanical Notes
Well-paced semi-windup delivery; long stride w/ moderate noise at landing, occasionally pulls offline after release. Full arm circle hooks slightly behind body; loose, fluid arm-stroke, 3/4 slot.

Control
Control 45 55 Three pitches for strikes in best sequences. Gets ahead w/ FB well for young pitcher; lands CB for more strikes when he front-doors to a lefty; CH has promise but doesn't use much, will need to mix it more against better bats.

Overall Summary
Ceiling of a quality middle-rotation lefty, projects as a nice mix of stuff and pitchability. Polished delivery and control will allow him to move more quickly than many young pitching prospects, and give a higher floor as well.
