Slider
Slider 40 45 85 84-87 Hard SL w/ sweepy tilt; inconsistent depth and sharpness; flashes like playable ML offering when delivery is right, but mechanics limit execution.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 30 30 88 87-89 Lacks feel for crude CH, often spikes; sparsely shown, not big part of mix; rare flashes of light sink but high-effort mechanics make it a non-factor.

Control
Control 30 40 FB sprays the zone, off-speed rarely for strikes; velo induces more swings/chases in A-Ball than it would at higher levels; control/pitchability must improve to face upper-level hitters and have chance at ML value.

Overall Summary
Plus velocity could get him to the big leagues in 4A/callup role, though lacks secondary or control for full-time spot in ML bullpen. Raw enough he could stall out in upper-minors and fall short altogether.
