Physical Description
Shorter and more compact than 6'3''/195 listing.
Mechanical Notes
Stretch only; max-effort operation that limits consistency and location; wild finish that comes off-line after release; x-long, hooked arm-circle w/ violent recoil in front. Generates velocity from lightning-quick 3/4 slot.

Fastball Velocity 60 60 94-95 94-97 Sits in the mid-90s and can reach back for 96-97 at best. Plus raw arm-strength that bails out the rest of the profile to some degree.

Slider
Slider 40 50 84 82-85 Flashes a big league slider at best, a separator between him and other crude arm-strength types. Two-plane tilt at best; wide break, glider type. Effortful delivery limits execution, lots of present backups/rollers. Potential future AVG pitch w/ more consistency.

Splitter
Splitter 40 40 84 83-85 Split-type wrinkle he mixes to LHH. Moderate movement, didn't use it much, tough to get a read on the pitch from a one-game viewing.

Control
Control 30 40 Rears back and lets it fly w/ minimal present control. Has time to make adjustments, but control has a ways to go before his power stuff plays the way it can.

Overall Summary
Ceiling of middle reliever w/ playable FB and SL mix, a harder matchup against RHHs. Don't see the control or consistency for higher-leverage spots; extremely raw control and command add risk to profile and will be the culprit if he stalls out in the high-minors.
