Fastball Movement
Fastball Movement 50 50 Average arm-side run, does a good job keeping FB away from LHH to arm side and working with his fastball movement.

Fastball Command
Fastball Command 40 50 Has trouble controlling his long levers downhill, hindering consistency of present command. Will flash low/glove side spots at times, then lose it the next batter. Will need more time than most to figure out in-zone location given his height, but has potential to develop enough command to be a starter.

Curveball
Curveball 30 40 79-81 79-81 Wrinkle pitch; loopy shape shows early w/ average depth as a second-look breaker. Can tighten it up some, but will never be a go-to secondary pitch.

Slider
Slider 45 50 86-87 86-87 Go-to secondary pitch w/ upper-80s power velo and two-plane tilt. Flashes a big-league slider right now at its best, but can back up on him. Future average pitch w/ more reps and refinement.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 40 50 86-87 86-87 Can throw at fastball arm speed and get modest movement, flashing future average upside. Inconsistent present execution, deep-projection pitch that can be a workable change in time.

Overall Summary
Ceiling of #4 starter on the strength of a quality fastball and four-pitch mix. Has big velocity, but the rest of the arsenal is inconsistent at this stage; improving secondary pitches is the key to reaching ceiling.
