Slider
Slider 40 45 85 84-87 Power SL w/ cut-like action that stays on one plane. Occasionally shows a hint more depth, potential workable breaking ball if he can find more consistency.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 40 45 85 84-87 Third pitch but in his mix. Firm split-like dive w/ flashes of late action at best. Could be a wrinkle to give another look, especially to LHH.

Control

Overall Summary
Old-for-level RHP, close to a finished product. Physicality and FB velocity give him a chance at the big leagues, though might lack another attribute for regular role. Likely 4A/upper-level depth piece who could get cups of coffee. Follow grade.
