Overall Summary
Left handed reliever with an elite fastball, a serviceable slider and a chance to be an impact back-end of the bullpen arm. Long, lanky frame with room to fill out and get stronger. Above-average athlete, smooth mechanics with some repeatable deception. Tends to cut himself off out front at times resulting in some inconsistent execution locating to the glove-side, but saw him make some adjustments in the inning; see improvement coming here. Fastball is a double-plus pitch; late life in the zone, elite velocity without max effort. Long legs, high waist gives him some angle even with the 3/4 arm slot; should continue to keep the ball on the ground and generate swing and miss. Slider is a work in progress; gets loose, out early; arm action plays it up and shows occasional 3/4 bite; see it getting to average. Raw stuff plays up the below-average command, believe he will see some improvement as he gets stronger and learns to repeat delivery. Said to be working on a changeup, but did not see; may not need a third pitch if control gets to fringe average. Comparable to Andrew Miller (LHP, Yankees) at the major league level.
