Overall Summary
Pitch to contact RHP with a plus sinker who pounds down in the zone and gets ground balls. Mixes pitches O.K., but inconsistent command in the zone has him behind often. Battles, showed poise with runners on base. Has some arm strength and maintains hard sink at 92-to-94 mph; below-average command/control, but can see up-tick in quality of stuff in shorter stints; value in ground-ball ability out of pen. Compares to Matt Albers (RHP, White Sox) at the major league level.
