Physical Description
Large physical frame w/ broad shoulders and V-torso. Looks more muscular than listed weight of 165.
Mechanical Notes
Stretch only, closed frontside creates deception and shows the ball late to LHH, moderate overall effort w/ off-line finish. Funky hooked arm-circle, H3/4 slot. High-maintenance operation ill-suited for starting role, mechanics help him more from the 'pen.

Slider

Control
Control 45 45 FB and SL are two primary pitches, keeps both around the zone. CH and CB only can expand down, can't land either for early-count strikes. Lacks stuff to challenge big league hitters over the plate, will have to nibble.

Overall Summary
Fits as a high-minors reliever. Ceiling of 4A/callup arm who gets cups of coffee in mopup or situational duty in the big leagues. Risk to profile: lacks carry tool, has taken a few years to get out of A-Ball.
