Fastball
Fastball 50 50 88-92 93 Two-seam tail to both sides; has some life in the zone. Has an idea, and looks to move it to both sides; will pitch in; inconsistent command presently, but misses stay down. Holds velo deep into outing; shows an extra gear when he needs it.

Curveball
Curveball 45 55 77-80 80 Good arm speed, out the same as the fastball; variations, feel to change shape from 12-to-6 to 10-to-4. Use for strikes and has some ability to take hitters out of zone. Will dial up some snap for put-away.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 50 55 82-83 83 Circle changeup with some late bottom and dive. Arm action sells it; can use in the zone. Should get to above average as he develops more consistent feel.

Overall Summary
Big, thick RHP with a feel of a solid three-pitch mix. He is a better athlete than the body lets on; some smooth effort to the delivery. Has advanced feel for his age, plays up the stuff; pounds down in the zone and should generate some ground balls. Don't project much more velo, but see fastball command getting more consistent. Confidence with both the curveball and changeup, but the changeup is go-to; will rush the delivery at times and yank the curveball, but showed stretches of solid sequencing and execution. Bad body is a concern, maintenance will be ongoing, but he has some present strength. Aggressive in the zone, misses tend to stay down and should generate some soft contact; held velo late into outing and still had the extra gear. Chance to eat some innings in the back-end of the rotation if fastball command and feel for secondaries continue to develop.
