Physical Description
Tall, lean, athletic frame that's super projectable. Very young in the face, significant growth left.
Mechanical Notes
Alternates between NWU and SWU, goes all from the stretch when he loses the zone. Free+easy operation, loose mound actions; full arm-circle shows on backside into fluid 3/4 slot. Very athletic, room to grow into plus delivery in time.

Slider
Slider 40 50 83 82-84 Flashes sharp bite+action, though execution is inconsistent. Gets short or glides when he doesn't finish. Big league ingredients, but avg SL is still deep down.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 30 40 86 85-88 Third pitch, early stages of development; overthrown and runs into FB, flashes occasional drop that hints he can develop more. Long way to go, but clean arm+delivery project.

Control
Control 30 45 Leans heavily on FB, doesn't mix speeds much and doesn't miss as many bats as he could as a result. Throws strikes in best sequences but loses the plate for spells. Deep projection control/pitchability profile.

Overall Summary
Extra-projectable RHP w/ big league frame and FB velo. Secondary, command, and pitchability all are works in progress. Might still just be scratching the surface, upside places him in FV 40 tier now, potential breakout candidate down the road.
