Fastball Movement
Fastball Movement 50 55 Heavy FB that bores in hard to armside. Shows above-avg life when delivery is timed and he gets downhill, something he can do more w/ mechanical refinement.

Fastball Command
Fastball Command 40 45 Effort in delivery limits present command. Scatters the zone, will always rely on velo to get away w/ his spots. Ceiling in rotation hinges on delivery/command improvements.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 45 55 85 84-88 Improved as season went on. Best ones have good sell and separation, showing armside dive. Inconsistent at times, still floats it occasionally.

Control
Control 40 50 Primary pitches are sinker and slider. Fights bouts of wildness now and can be vulnerable to the free pass. Needs to iron out delivery in order to improve control.

Overall Summary
If he can iron out mechanics and control/command, has the tools to be a mid-rotation starter. Heavy power sinker w/ both a SL and CH that flash above-avg upside. Has the stuff to pitch from the 'pen if he needs a fallback. Injury history and projection on pitchability add risk.
