Physical Description
Short, muscular frame w/ broad features. Thick lower-half.
Mechanical Notes
SWU; strong lower-half engagement through drop/drive style delivery; effort at finish, lands hard+closed while backside swings around hard and pulls him off-line. Deep arm-circle w/ inverted-w at foot-strike; strong 3/4 stroke. Noisy operation limits control/command and could wear down under starter's workload, durability less of a concern pitching shorter stints.

Curveball
Curveball 45 45 80 78-82 Mixes a true CB to LHH for another look at breaking ball. Takes something off SL and can land it for a get-me-over.

Slider
Slider 45 50 84 82-86 True SL that projects as a solid big league breaking ball. Sharp bite w/ moderate depth, long gloveside tilt.

Splitter
Splitter 45 50 85 84-87 Go-to secondary; sells splitter w/ FB armspeed, gets late dive that flashes above-avg. Solid weapon in the rotation, could be a dominant out pitch in relief.

Control
Control 40 45 Walks too many hitters to start right now. Pitch efficiency and turning over ML lineups in a starting role is a question despite premium stuff. Power 3-4 pitch mix likely better suited for relief unless there's a significant adjustment.

Overall Summary
Best-case ceiling of a power #5 SP with more stuff than pitchability, but can see him having more impact in a high-leverage relief role. Plus FB and potential swing/miss secondaries will get him to the big leagues in some capacity.
