Fastball Command
Fastball Command 40 55 Still finding consistency; hits arm-side target regularly. Looser to gloveside but showed it in 5/5 start. Age and athleticism/operation allow for significant projection.

Curveball
Curveball 50 60 82-83 81-84 11-to-5 plane, w/ occasional 12-to-6 power curve w/ downer action. Showed plus in 5/5 look; lacked feel and left up; slurvier 5/11; still finding consistency. Confident throwing back foot and back door to lefties. Could miss RH major league bats at present despite the inconsistency.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 45 55 86-87 84-87 Flashes above-average when he keeps up arms peed; looks like a two-seamer before late, short action. Plays to weak contact despite lack of present FB separation; showed a few in the 84-to-85 range that had more bottom and showed glimpses of bat-missing ability.

Control
Control 40 55 Trusts fastball and doesn't nibble with it; in zone looking to get ahead. More strikes w/ FB than secondary pitches. Ingredients of solid strike-thrower; athleticism and loose operation project to improve overall control.

Overall Summary
Extra-projectable righty w/ impressive mix of present three pitches and physical projection. Ceiling of mid-rotation starter, albeit w/ risk that comes w/ age. Will be a breakout prospect upon reaching full-season ball.
