Fastball Velocity 50 55 92-93 91-95 Velo down a tick as every-fifth-day grind takes its toll in SP role. Has been up to 97 in the past, can see him working more consistently in mid-90s from the 'pen.

Overall Summary
Live-armed righty w/ flashes of FB and SL that could tick up in ‘pen role. Chance to emerge as middle relief prospect if he takes to short stints.
