Overall Summary
Back-end RHRP with a double-plus fastball and a chance to have a plus curveball. Track record of struggling with command/control, but turned a corner in 2016 and got more consistent with the fastball in the zone. Curveball can be inconsistent, usability a concern, but improved in 2016, trending in the right direction. Swing-and-miss stuff, and even 40-grade command will be enough for him to be effective.
