Fastball Command
Fastball Command 40 50 Control is ahead of command. Often works in middle-third, though throws lots of strikes. Can project on command given his age.

Slider
Slider 40 50 82-83 80-84 Flashes avg at best, usually a fringy pitch. 3/4's slot makes it hard to stay on top, drops under the ball and glides it. Chance to get to avg but has a ways to go.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 40 50 87-88 87-90 Split-like changeup, overthrows and lacks separation from FB. Flashes late, sharp action that hints pitch could be developed if he takes something off.

Control
Control 40 50 Polished strikethrower, pounds the zone w/ FB, advanced ability to limit walks. Too many FBs, must improve sequencing, makings of avg control as he trusts his off-speed.

Overall Summary
#5 starter's ceiling, though a deep-projection type w/ risk to the profile. Will wind up a longman or 4A type if his secondaries don't develop.
