Physical Description
Big and broad; thickness throughout with no projection remaining.
Mechanical Notes
Moderate effort NWU from L3/4 slot. Stiff break, wrap, long and rigid in the back; arm is late, tilts to clear, comes across body to gloveside, arm action makes repeating release point a challenge.

Overall Summary
Will flash leverage RP stuff in best outings, but overall inconsistency will land him in a middle relief role over long stretches. Will rack up strikeouts when he's locked in.
