Slow semi-windup, tall gather at the top, unwinds down the mound and struggles to repeat. Fast, whippy 3/4 slot.

Fastball Command
Fastball Command 40 50 Still a thrower w/ spray command, but improving as season goes on. Locates better to armside. Can improve some, will always get by on velo.

Curveball
Curveball 45 55 81-82 80-83 Threw SL early in the year, looks like a CB now. Hard slurve, flashes sharp three-quarters action with depth at best, above-avg potential as delivery refines.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 40 55 90-91 89-92 Throws CH too hard, acts like 2sm FB. Flashes sharp, late dive that hints a potential above-avg pitch can be developed w/ more velo separation.

Control
Control 40 50 FB for strikes w/ more control than command. Can land CB in the zone against both LHH/RHH. Young and athletic enough to improve control in time.

Overall Summary
High risk/high reward prospect, electric arm that’s raw and has a number of potential outcomes. Best-case ceiling of a mid-rotation starter w/ dominant FB and miss-bat secondary pitches. Has the raw stuff to succeed in high-leverage ‘pen role if he needs a fallback.
