Fastball Command
Fastball Command 40 45 Struggled to command to spots in the zone, though better going armside than gloveside; falls behind and has to come over the plate in hitter's counts; can improve slightly w/ reps given clean arm action, but needs velo to pitch w/ his fastball.

Slider
Slider 40 50 82-83 81-84 Flashes AVG at best and projects as a workable slider at maturity. Inconsistent present execution; shows early at times and gets on the side of it w/ sweepy tilt.

Control
Control 45 50 Able to throw strikes with FB, but often weren't quality strikes. Has right idea with slider and change, just needs more development and reps to execute better, future avg control.

Overall Summary
Physical righty w/ good fastball and flashes of three-pitch mix. Iffy command and lack of true swing-and-miss secondary limit him to a #5 rotation ceiling despite plus velocity.
