Slider
Slider 50 55 84-85 85 3/4 break with depth and average bite. Will get big and have some sweep at times; can throw for strikes, but feel comes and goes. Ingredients to get to above average if he gets more consistent with it.

Overall Summary
Left-handed reliever with some arm strength and a chance for an above-average breaking ball. Throws strikes and gets some angle & deception with the delivery and arm action, but inconsistent command in the zone. Will give up some contact and secondary is inconsistent. No true out pitch, but can generate soft contact when he's on. Below average-command gets exposed in longer looks; best suited for shorter stints. Could see a tick more velo in a relief role. Compares to Antonio Bastardo (LHRP. Pirates) at the major league level.
