Physical Description
XL frame, broad and durable throughout. Built like Michael Pineda.
Mechanical Notes
Full windup w/ effort throughout, though he's strong enough to pitch through it. Lands open and pulls severely off-line. Stiff, plunged arm-circle, H3/4 slot. Improving his direction to the plate will be a development point moving forward.

Fastball Command
Fastball Command 45 45 XXL frame and active delivery make it hard to locate within the zone. Throws enough strikes but it's control over command.

Slider
Slider 45 50 86-87 84-88 Power slider w/ the shape and depth of a big league breaking pitch at best. Can be flat and cut-like at times, doesn't execute consistently. Believe he can bring out fully avg slider in time.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 40 45 85-86 83-88 Inconsistent feel for changeup, overthrows it at times and straightens out like a BP fastball. Flashes armside dive when he can get more separation, potential to become workable third pitch to lefties.

Control
Control 50 50 Stays around the zone surprisingly well given height and noisy delivery. Gets strike one and limits free passes.

Overall Summary
Ceiling of a durable back-rotation starter if fringy command and third pitch don't hold him up. Otherwise profiles as a swingman who can eat innings and might sneak into the #5 spot of a lesser rotation.
