Curveball
Curveball 45 55 78 77-80 Tight spin, three-quarters shape, broke out to LHH later in outing. Flashed sharp bite and distinct action from SL, could be another above-avg breaking pitch w/ refinement.

Slider
Slider 50 60 86 84-88 Best secondary, separator, big league SL right now. Power pitch w/ long tilt and sharp, late bite. Future out pitch, devastates low-minors hitters when he buries it.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 30 50 88 87-91 Crude CH in early stages of development, but shows an idea when to use it. Overthrows, speeds up bats and acts like BP fastball at times. Athleticism and armspeed here to develop.

Control
Control 40 50 FB/SL main two pitches early in outings, mixes CB/CH to LHH sparsely. Shows pitchability and idea of sequencing. Mixes speeds between FB/SL, can frontdoor RHH w/ breaking ball.
