Slider
Slider 40 45 78 77-81 Slurvy pitch, feel to add/subtract and change shape. Looks like a CB at 77-78, SL when firmer. Won’t miss bats but can play as usable offering.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 30 40 85 84-87 Too firm, blends in to FB and acts like 2sm. Slows arm, has to tip the pitch to get movement. Some projection, but don’t see enough third pitch to turn over lineups as SP.

Control
Control 50 50 Developed control; pours FB/SL over for strikes, rarely walks hitters; best attribute, ties together fringy stuff mix. Short overall arsenal lacking go-to third pitch; will need to nibble more than he does now. High pitching IQ, knows how to use what he has.

Overall Summary
Polished RHP more notable for floor than ceiling. Don’t see enough off-speed for true rotation role. Durable frame and control/command give upside of long reliever. Will wind up an upper-level depth piece/4A callup type if nothing carries the profile at higher levels.
