Slider
Slider 40 50 84-85 83-87 Inconsistent; plus short, hard bite in upper velo band, less sharpness otherwise. Can't locate down in the zone consistently enough for outpitch, only up or out of zone. Weak contact, some barreling expected from RH hitters. In shorter stints will maintain sharpness of upper velo band more consistently.

Overall Summary
Lacks command, control and third pitch for a rotation role or high-leverage relief. Ceiling is a middle reliever who can match up against both righies and lefties, but has enough deception against same-side bats the floor is still a LOOGY type.
