Physical Description
Thick and strong throughout, wide frame, soft in middle, body will require maintenance.
Mechanical Notes
Stretch only, extreme effort to L3/4 slot, doesn't repeat. Pushes off slightly closed, lands well-open to whip arm slightly across, loses line; long and high arm action in the back, wraps.

Fastball Value
Overall Fastball Value 55 60 Elite velocity w/ avg movement, plays down due to poor command but will get swing and miss in zone. When SL not sharp, hitters look for it up and barrel.

Fastball Command
Fastball Command 30 40 Very inconsistent due to delivery; better to armside, erratic to gloveside, will leave up, find middle of plate. New to pen full-time; projects to improve with adjustment into role.

Slider
Slider 50 55 88 87-89 Flashes plus but has inconsistent shape, sharpness, and location; varies outing to outing. When it's sharp, depth makes it a weapon; when lacking feel, hitters will spit on and key on FB. New to pen, should add half-grade of consistency.

Overall Summary
Power pen arm w/ big fastball; control and command present risks and prevent higher leverage role. Fits in 7th inning; wildness creates uncomfortable at bats. Will have sporadic success but delivery not conducive to consistency.
