Physical Description
Tall w/ broad shoulders and strong lower half. Prototype lanky hard-throwing build. Long history of injuries, including TJ surgery (2016) and other shoulder/elbow issues.
Mechanical Notes
Alternates between windup and stretch; pitches from SWU starting games or in longer outings. Plunged, off-line arm-circle w/ inverted-w at foot strike; fast 3/4 slot. Arm works hard through delivery, aspects of his mechanics have contributed to past injury issues.

Control
Control 40 45 Control and pitchability could tick up as he adjusts to the 'pen, able to lean on FB and face lineups once. Needs to get ahead in counts to expand down w/ CB. At his best when off-speed lands for strikes to keep hitters guessing.

Overall Summary
Shifting to the bullpen full-time, has the tools to get to the big leagues quickly if he takes to new role. FB/CB could play up in shorter outings and give upside of setup reliever. Significant injury history adds risk and could ultimately impact his longevity.
