Slider
Slider 40 45 84 82-85 Deceptive pitch that tunnels well off FB. Best ones have sharp two-plane finish and show late. Inconsistent execution, occasionally loose and stays up. Projects as a playable pitch w/ more consistency, though won't miss bats.

Overall Summary
Older RH-RP beating up on A-Ball competition, looks really for next level. Ability to use three pitches gives ceiling of upper-level 'pen depth/4A call-up piece. Don't see carry tool for full-time ML role. Follow grade.
