Physical Description
Large frame, thick throughout w/ soft middle, will need to monitor body and stay in shape.
Mechanical Notes
Semi-windup; deceptive closed front side and moving parts that hide the ball. Compact arm-circle w/ inverted-w strain, moderate effort at landing that pulls off-line after release. 3/4 slot. Unorthodox delivery, but he repeats it and it works for him.

Fastball Value
Overall Fastball Value 45 50 Velo is way down. Pro grind has backed up FB since amateur days.

Fastball Velocity 45 50 90 88-94 Sat 92-93 and touched 94-5 early in the season. Velo dropped to 89-92 by second look. Has shown glimpses of enough velo in the past to think there’s a bit more in the tank when fully healthy and in shape.

Overall Summary
Out of shape, stuff has backed up on pro grind. Might not have been fully healthy in August look, pulled after two innings and velo way down. Now looks more like a durable strikethrower without a miss-bat pitch. Conditioning and off-field issues add risk to profile.
