Physical Description
Long, lanky frame; long legs, high waist. Squared shoulders; room to fill out; underdeveloped lower half presently, but has some strength projection.
Mechanical Notes
Medium arm circle with abbreviated windup. Has some funk in the arm action - hook and some effort there. High leg lift with some crossfire action. High-maintenance delivery, but manages to repeat; chance to smooth out as he gets stronger.

Fastball
Fastball 40 50 86-90 90 Straight with some occasional late life; tail to arm side. Gets extended and good job getting it glove side. Has some angle; efforty arm action plays up the velo. Chance to find some more velo as the lower half gets stronger; can see him getting to average in short stints.

Curveball
Curveball 30 40 73-75 75 Loose, big shape. Slurvy qualities; throws for strikes. Arm works well with it and has ability to dial up some finish for put-away, but inconsistent. Chance to get to fringe average.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 40 40 80-82 82 Gradual turnover action with below-average depth. Arm action sells it, makes it serviceable. Throws for strikes to arm side; could develop some depth in the future, but used sparingly. Third pitch.

Overall Summary
LHRP with some arm strength and funk/deception in the delivery that plays up fringy stuff. Fastball is fairly straight, but he creates good angle and shows life to the glove side when he gets extended. He doesn't have match-up stuff, but he gets ground balls and looks to be an uncomfortable at-bat for lefties. Very slender right now, lacks much lower half strength and struggles to consistently repeat a high-maintenance delivery. Should see a small up-tick in velo with added strength. See deception and command playing up in shorter stints. Chance for fringe-average slurve that will be effective vs. LHH. Got tired, stuff fell off in fourth inning of work. Best suited for short stints in situational relief role..
