Fastball Value
Overall Fastball Value 45 45 Solid mix of velo, angle, and command. Would play AVG if he had more off-speed stuff, but lack of SL/CH will keep better hitters sitting fastball.

Fastball Movement
Fastball Movement 50 50 Uses height well to create downhill plane. AVG run on the fastball, more 2sm movement to the arm-side of the plate.

Control
Control 50 50 Reliable strike-thrower, keeps three pitches around the zone. Competes w/ fringy stuff. Won't be able to challenge better hitters w/ his FB over the plate for strike one like he does now against younger competition.

Overall Summary
ORG arm that can fill rotation role in high-minors. Ceiling of an emergency/cup-of-coffee situation. Doesn't have enough off-speed to keep ML bats off fastball.
