Physical Description
Rail thin, lacks physicality. Will not add significant mass, not a body to handle workload. Wiry and twitchy build.
Mechanical Notes
Stretch only with high effort, H3/4 slot. Long arm action, wraps in the back. Massive spine tilt limits his balance after release, trouble repeating arm-slot, opens early.

Control

Overall Summary
Above-average fastball with plane provides middle-relief upside. Slider has another step to go in consistency but it already flashes. Command does not project for leverage relief.
