Physical Description
Tall w/ narrow, thin, sloped frame. Won't ever be overly physical. Built like Chandler Day (WSH).
Mechanical Notes
Deliberate SWU; slight shoulder tilt through drive, plunge arm-circle, arm is long in the back and shows behind him. Fast H3/4 release.

Fastball Value
Overall Fastball Value 45 55 Relies heavily on FB velo in starting role; projects better in relief long-term.

Fastball Velocity 55 60 93-94 92-97 Consistent 93-94, scrapes 96-97 on best bolts. Wonder if narrow frame holds velo over a long pro season. Could be consistent 94-97 in short stints.

Fastball Movement
Fastball Movement 50 50 Consistent armside run. Straightens out when elevated at the top of velo range.

Fastball Command
Fastball Command 40 40 FB around zone w/ more control than true command. Often up, catches plate, not consistent to either side. Less pressure on in-zone location in relief.

Curveball
Curveball 40 45 76-77 76-78 Consistent depth, though bite on it is fairly soft. Gets loose at times and rolls in. Projects as workable off-speed pitch, but not a bat-misser.

Slider
Slider 40 45 81-82 80-83 Throws harder version of his CB for closer to a true SL. More feel for it than CH, better chance to develop into usable wrinkle.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 30 40 82-83 82-85 Slowed arm, tentative finishing it; floated when left up in the zone and was hit hard; slightly better action when thrown at armspeed, but limited overall feel.

Control
Control 40 40 Predictable sequencing, hard early and off-speed when ahead. Under mandate to work on CH and threw often. Lands FB more consistently than off-speed. Standard RP control profile.

Overall Summary
Hard-throwing SP lacking pitchability or control/command to remain in rotation long-term. Projects better in relief, where velo can play up. Middle relief ceiling, FB can get him there but don't see swing/miss secondary for leverage innings.
