On 40-Man Roster: No
Physical Description
Medium, muscular, well-proportioned pitching frame. Built like Jake Peavy.
Mechanical Notes
Semi-windup; tall leg kick that turns slightly away from the hitter; moderate effort in closed landing, as upper-half thwacks and he occasionally pulls off-line. Hooked arm-circle, inverted-W strain; strong H3/4 slot. Too much effort to start; mechanics will be less disruptive in 'pen role.

Fastball Movement
Fastball Movement 45 50 Moderate armside run that will uptick when he's able to air it out from the bullpen.

Fastball Command
Fastball Command 45 50 Signs of future AVG command that's almost fully developed; ability to move the FB to both sides w/ low-90s velo overwhelms A-Ball hitters. Went down/gloveside very well, occasionally flashed a good spot across the plate in to LHH.

Curveball
Curveball 40 45 77 74-78 Third pitch w/ occasional depth; hooked wrist in the back limits extension on CB; can improve a tick if he smoothens takeaway. Wrinkle pitch, a second look at his breaking ball.

Slider
Slider 45 50 84 83-86 Flashes of a big league slider separate him from 4A type pen arms. Medium depth, fair sharpness at best; regresses in quality as he tires, showing more like a hard cement-mixer. Future average pitch.

Control
Control 45 50 Advanced strikethrower, gets ahead and establishes, puts pressure on hitters and won't beat himself. FB/SL first time through, wrinkles CB later in outings. Aggressive mound presence that translates well to the 'pen.

Overall Summary
Lacks the third pitch and endurance to turn ML lineups over as a starter. See more impactful contribution in bullpen, where FB/SL mix profile in a middle relief role. Dominating less advanced hitters right now, looks ready for the next level.
