Fastball Value
Overall Fastball Value 40 45 FB projects to a usable pitch in 'pen role, though will need to get back former velo to be better than a decent offering.

Fastball Velocity 50 50 92 91-94 Has shown 96-97 from the 'pen in the past, though settled to low-90s as SP. Could gain a tick pitching back in relief.

Control
Control 30 40 Inconsistent strikes working as a starter, lacks third pitch to combat LHH and turn over lineups. Control must improve to have ML value, but could hurt him less in 'pen role.

Overall Summary
Physical RHP who has battled injuries but shown better velocity in the past. Looks like a reliever long term, and could emerge as a bullpen prospect if FB/SL tick up in short stints. Follow grade.
