NWU, stretch only; drop/drive style mechanics cost him angle; collapses backside and throws uphill; long, closed stride w/ inverted-w strain at foot-strike; high front side hides H3/4 slot; strong lines, gets over front side well through release.

Fastball Value
Overall Fastball Value 40 50 Plays under velocity in SP role given limited life/command; FB projects avg when he can rear back and air it out in relief.

Fastball Velocity 50 55 93-94 92-96 Strong guy that flashes above-avg velo to 95-96 early in outings; tails off in SP role as outings progress; will work closer to top of velo range in short-stint role.

Fastball Command
Fastball Command 30 40 Backside drive and closed landing make it hard to place FB down; struggles to hit gloveside spots across the plate; more leeway w/ command off firmer FB in relief.

Curveball
Curveball 50 50 81 79-83 Spike CB is best pitch and separator; consistent depth and sharp 10-to-4 action; borderline above-avg, likely plays closer to 50 as he'll have issues getting ML hitters to 2-strike counts.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 30 40 87 86-88 CH is distant third pitch, will need less in 'pen role; often straight and too firm, blends into FB; flashes of short dive hint it could develop into workable wrinkle.

Control
Control 30 40 FB around the plate at times, though loses the zone when mechanics fall out of sync; rare pitcher who shows more feel to land CB; lacks control or arsenal depth to start at higher levels, less pressure on both in the 'pen.

Overall Summary
Velocity and sharp CB can get him to big leagues in relief; iffy control/command/FB life could make it hard to carve out full-time role in contending 'pen; walk issues and injury history add risk. Profiles as 4A/up-and-down type that gets cups of coffee.
