Curveball
Curveball 40 50 77-79 76-79 Primary breaker, 1/7 shape with avg depth and action, struggled to get to it consistently, used to both sides but primarily to LHH, did not use as a chase pitch, more so as a change of pace offering, future avg offering.

ChangeUp

Control
Control 45 50 Big body with long levers, won't ever be a fine thrower and given size could take longer to develop than normally, but can mix in 3 pitches for strikes at present with an idea of how to pitch.

Overall Summary
Projects as mid-rotation starter. Lacks a true wipeout pitch, but checks a lot of boxes and projects to have average off-speed.
