Fastball Value
Overall Fastball Value 50 55 Inconsistent command makes plus velo play down; average life aids ability to miss some bats. Largely finished product but some room to improve command consistency by not overthrowing.

Fastball Command
Fastball Command 40 45 Repeats ok for having below-average delivery, can hit spots for spurts. Early release point, lack of followthrough and extension limit command profile. Left up when reaching for more.

Slider
Slider 50 50 83 82-84 Tight 11-5 break; inconsistent. Throws for chases away to RHs; didn't put it in the zone; MLB hitters will make him throw it in zone.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 50 55 83-84 82-85 Best secondary; deception from armspeed and FB separation. Ability to throw in zone for swing-and-miss but inconsistent commanding it. Dangerous up. Still developing consistency.

Control
Control 45 45 Below-average delivery leads to losing FB location, working from behind which will lead to above-average walk rate.

Overall Summary
Not much development left but high risk of RP because of command/control and delivery. Stuff is good enough to play in rotation, showed enough repetition to profile as backend SP. Will need to be more crafty mixing pitches to work around fringy command.
