Fastball Value
Overall Fastball Value 40 45 FB will play better in relief, where velo could tick up and there's less pressure on command.

Fastball Velocity 45 50 90-91 88-94 Settles in a fringy 90-91 as SP, loses velo from the stretch. Scrapes of 93-94 on best bolts hint more velo could come on w/ move to 'pen.

Curveball
Curveball 40 45 77 76-79 Flashes of shapely down action hint there's more room to develop a workable ML off-speed. Uses as a show-me to LHH but think it's his better breaking ball.

Control
Control 40 45 Gets ahead w/ FB at this level more than he'll be able to against better hitters. Keeps deep mix of pitches around the zone, attacks RHH/LHH w/ different sequencing. Signs that control will play better facing lineups once.

Overall Summary
Lacks carry tool for full-time ML role, though ability to keep four pitches around the zone could get him to the big leagues if his FB ticks up in the 'pen. Ceiling of 4A/upper-level depth type who could fill a variety of low-leverage roles. Follow grade.
