Physical Description
Medium frame, narrow build w/ athleticism and flexibility. Won’t be overly-physical but has some room to fill across upper-half.
Mechanical Notes
FWU, over-head break; fluid+athletic overall operation that extends well and finishes clean. Off-line arm-circle w/ inverted-w foot-strike. Extremely loose 3/4 slot w/ fast arm.

Fastball Value
Overall Fastball Value 45 55 FB is best attribute, could be above-avg pitch in ‘pen role where physicality and arsenal depth aren’t concerns.

Fastball Velocity 50 55 91-92 91-95 Live arm bumps 94-95 early, thin frame tires as outings progress and settles in low-90s. Fast, loose arm-stroke+flashes of velo hint at 94-96 in short-stint role.
Fastball Velocity
Fastball Movement
Fastball Movement 50 55 Lively FB w/ late burst that gets on hitters quickly at the top of the zone. Projects above-avg as FB ticks up in relief.

Fastball Command
Fastball Command 40 45 Gets ahead w/ FB but often in middle-third. Occasional sequences of command to both sides. Less pressure on in-zone location in relief.

Curveball
Curveball 40 50 72 71-74 Tight rotation, shapely pitch w/ flashes of long two-plane depth. Lacks velocity but separation from FB is funky and works for him, freezes hitters.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 30 40 82 81-84 Third pitch he rarely shows, basically a two-pitch guy. Athleticism+armspeed here to develop some; less emphasis on third speed facing lineups once.

Control
Control 40 45 Throws strikes w/ FB, though able to lean on it more in A-Ball than he’ll be able to up the ladder. Lands CB in best sequences. Short arsenal, two-pitch guy, control profiles better in relief. Carries a confident flare to the mound.

Overall Summary
Plus athlete w/ loose, quick arm that projects to play up airing it out in short stints. Don’t see the frame or third pitch to fit as SP at ML level. Chance for solid FB/CB mix gives middle relief upside.
