Fastball Value
Overall Fastball Value 45 55 Inefficient pitch counts and below-avg command as SP, FB plays under its velo in current role. Projects up when he airs it out and faces lineups once.

Fastball Movement
Fastball Movement 50 55 Flashes heavy run and dive action at best, mechanical inconsistencies limit present extension and life. Can get above-avg movement as he irons out delivery.

Fastball Command
Fastball Command 40 45 FB around the plate at times, but loose within the zone. Tough to command FB w/ his finish. Projects up in relief role where he can lean on velocity more and challenge over the plate.

Curveball
Curveball 40 45 79 78-80 Mixes CB more to LHH. Loose roller at times, shows flashes of being effective wrinkle. Shouldn't be used as a primary pitch.

Slider
Slider 45 55 88 87-90 Power SL w/ flashes of above-avg break. Isn't up in counts enough as a SP to really use it as a wipeout pitch, but think it could immediately play up in short-stints.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 40 50 87 86-89 Firm split-like CH shows late dive at best. Inconsistent execution, can be an effective weapon to LHH if he develops it. Spikes the pitch right now when he loses a feel.

Control
Control 40 45 Athletic for his size, so he throws strikes w/ a bad delivery. Struggles to land off-speed at times and couldn't get away w/ challenging over the plate behind in the count like he does in the minors. Projects to limit walks well for a power relief arm.

Overall Summary
Physical power arm, chance to miss bats w/ FB and SL in short stints. He will get chances to develop as a SP, but don't see delivery or approach holding up in rotation. Raw stuff fits better in the 'pen for me, ceiling of a setup reliever if he takes to a late-innings role.
