NWU, all from stretch; will ultimately need to learn a windup to work as a SP; loose, athletic overall operation allows projection; inconsistent repeats at present. Long, full arm-circle shows on backside; loose 3/4 slot.

Fastball Velocity 45 50 91 88-94 Velo has backed up and/or nearing injury; mid-90s in the past w/ T96-97, now drops to high-80s later in outings. Frame and youth project to get some velo back; could get back to mid-90s in short stints.

Curveball
Curveball 40 45 79 78-81 Less dynamic than previous looks, where CB flashed power down shape. Still shows sharp bite at times, though got loose+rolled more as he tired.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 30 45 81 79-83 Third pitch, shows more to LHH. Consistent separation w/ inconsistent movement; armside fade w/ hint of plane-change at best; telegraphs and straightens otherwise. Got more comfortable as outing progressed, reason to project w/ continued reps.

Control
Control 30 45 FB/CB main two pitches, though developing CH into workable third. Sequences of strikes, though control wanes later in games and shows youthful inconsistency. Tools to project up as he builds mound time and adds strength.

Overall Summary
Concerning look, velo way down and hit DL a week later; has shown mid-90s FB and hammer CB in the past but stuff has backed up overall. Should get every chance to develop in SP role, though could be interesting in relief if he needs a fallback. Long-range development project.
