Physical Description
Short and athletic with wiry features. Question if he's durable enough for starter's workload.
Mechanical Notes
Slow-tempo, semi-windup delivery. Extends well over lower half w/ athletic operation. Works around body; slightly closed landing causes moderate off-line finish after release. Hook in the back w/ inverted-W strain. Plus arm-speed through a loose, quick, high 3/4's slot.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 40 45 85 84-87 A little too firm and straightens out over the plate. Flashed a handful w/ more dive down+armside, hinting a workable third pitch could be refined w/ more reps.

Control
Control 45 50 More control than command, but fills the zone w/ FB+CB. CH is more of a chase pitch than one he lands for early-count strikes.

Overall Summary
Don't see the frame or stuff to fit as a true SP option. Velocity could spike in 'pen, where three-pitch mix gives ability to face both LHH/RHH in middle relief role.
