Slider
Slider 45 50 81 79-83 Needs a fully avg third pitch to turn over big league lineups. SL has that potential, but doesn't use it enough. Better than his CB, but plays as a fringy pitch w/ current usage.

Control
Control 50 50 Leans heavily on FB/CH mix, lacks the stuff to not show three speeds early to ML hitters. Avg control, consistent strike-thrower, comes at the zone aggressively to get ahead.

Overall Summary
High floor/low ceiling type, could hold his own as a swingman/spot-starter in the big leagues right now. Chance to be a true #5 starter, though will have a hard time carving out a full-time ML rotation role if command or slider don't improve.
