ChangeUp
ChangeUp 30 30 84 82-86 Below-avg pitch he lacks a feel for. Slows arm and guides the pitch, doesn't move much and often out of the zone. Won't need it as a reliever.

Control
Control 40 40 Pitches off FB, leans on it heavily early in outings. Doesn't throw secondary pitches for consistent strikes. Falls behind and hitters sit on fastball. Should not see lineups twice.

Overall Summary
Currently a spot-starter in 2A, though should be exclusively a LH-RP at higher levels. Likely a high-minors bullpen piece; LH arm-strength and slider that is tough on lefties could get him a cup of coffee in a situational role. Marginal prospect.
