Slider
Slider 50 55 87 84-88 True slider w/ hard spin and flashes of above-avg action. Backs up on him at times and stays up in the zone. Could miss bats if he executes it more consistently.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 50 55 87-88 86-90 Power split-like changeup, shows more to lefties but can mix to same-side bats as a surprise pitch. Really developed it as the season went on, flashing swing/miss action by year's end.

Control
Control 40 45 Fiery mound presence that's well-suited for late-game situations. Mixes healthy dose of SL and CH and doesn't just rely on his fastball. Shows signs of pitchability that allow projection on control. Could be the rare power arm w/ legit three-pitch mix and some strikethrowing ability.

Overall Summary
Could hold his own in the big leagues right now. Power FB w/ two solid off-speed pitches that allow him to face both LHH/RHH. Has the stuff to carve out a big league role in the 'pen, the ceiling being a setup reliever that can pitch leverage situations in the 7th/8th inning.
