Physical Description
Tall, lanky; projectable frame; room to fill out; lots of arms and legs.
Mechanical Notes
Long arm action, full circle; gets a little bit deliberate with the windup, but should smooth out as he gets stronger. Crossfire delivery with some drop and drive; opens front side early at times.

Fastball
Fastball 60 60 90-93 94 Gets tail, run to both sides; really flattens out up in the zone. Held velo well late into start; will play up if moved to the bullpen. Gets some late life in the zone without max effort and shows inconsistent sink. Occasional cut @90-92, tight dart. Below-average command; attempts to work to both sides, but misses over the plate often.

Curveball
Curveball 40 50 77-78 78 Round, 11-to-5 shape; occasional snap/finish, but inconsistent and lacks feel; used very little in this outing. Showed a few at average; has good arm action with it, could project to fringe average.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 40 50 87-88 89 Circle grip, small fade; acts more like a tw-seam fastball; very firm and lacks consistent bottom; attempts to use to both sides of plate, inconsistent feel. Arm action plays it up a bit; chance to get to average with more consistent feel.

Overall Summary
Long and lanky with long, loose arm action that throws strikes, keeps the ball on the ground with a chance to eat innings at major league level. Leans heavily on the fastball and has below-average command in the zone presently, but late action helps keep it off the barrel. Has tail to both sides and worked in tight cut later in outing. Has a plan: attempts to work to both sides, but trouble repeating mechanics leads to inconsistent execution. Curveball is his best secondary right now; showed some snap mid-outing, but not an out pitch. Changeup lacks separation from fastball velo, but gets some late tail/fade. Strikeout #'s way down from 2015, but ingredients and raw stuff are there to miss bats if command comes up. Will need to learn to throttle back and forth better at upper levels. Did not have best stuff this time out; yanking the fastball and struggling to locate the breaking ball, but battled and worked out of trouble; showed poise with runners on; delivery smoothed out a lot from fourth inning on. Has a chance to stick in the back of the rotation; arm strength, arm action, athleticism allows for some projection with the stuff, but will need to develop more consistent feel and separation with his secondary. Compares to Taylor Jungmann at MLB level.
