Physical Description
Average build, broad shoulders, trim waist. Slender, has some room to fill out in lower half.
Mechanical Notes
Compact delivery; short arm in back, hides it a bit. Some effort, but repeats. Medium-to-low leg lift; short stride and slightly deliberate; opens front side early.

Overall Summary
Right-handed reliever that gets some deception in the delivery that plays up average to slightly above-average stuff. Fastball is straight with some flat run and command is erratic, but has some margin for error in the zone. Shows two average secondary pitches, but lacks consistency and usability is a concern. Looks like he has dropped his arm slot slightly from 2015, which has added deception and resulted in some better swing and miss. Not afraid to challenge hitters, and has the stuff to battle back from bad counts. Ultimately will have to repeat the delivery and show more consistency with his secondary stuff to reach his ceiling. Should benefit from full-time bullpen role in 2016.
