Physical Description
Tall w/ narrow and lanky build.
Mechanical Notes
Slow semi-windup, moving parts in delivery hide the ball and disrupt timing. Deception-based mechanics, funkiness in delivery plays up his stuff. Long, off-line arm-circle, 3/4 slot.

Overall Summary
Best-case ceiling is finesse backend starter, competitor who gets contact outs w/ deception and off-speed. Funky delivery and pitch mix could take well to the bullpen if the stuff is too short to make it through lineups twice. Looks ready for AA competition.
