ChangeUp
ChangeUp 40 40 85 84-86 Shows to LHH first time through; limited overall confidence, doesn't show it much. Iffy feel for the pitch, won't need a third pitch as much in the 'pen.

Control
Control 40 45 Below-average now w/ some projection as he builds back innings. Struggles to get strike one as starter, runs up his pitch count. More stuff than feel/control.

Overall Summary
Injury history and limited control/third pitch will move him to a bullpen role. Has the stuff to fit a setup profile if he can stay healthy.
