Curveball
Curveball 40 45 76 75-78 Shapely down action w/ tight rotation on best ones. Gets loose and lollipops when he doesn't finish it out in front. Flashes of spin hint at a playable big league breaking ball in the tank.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 30 30 84 83-85 Well below-avg pitch he'll likely scrap if ever in a 'pen role. Limited confidence, barely shows it, often stays straight and floats over the plate.

Cutter
Cutter 30 40 86 84-88 Mixes a short cut-type FB later in outings. Minimal tilt at high end of velo band; more movement when thrown at 84-85, where pitch acts more like a SL.

Control
Control 40 40 Control projects better in relief where arsenal depth and occasional bouts of wildness will hurt him less. Works quick w/ competitive mound presence, keeps hitters on their toes.

Overall Summary
Getting his footing back after missing all of last year w/ injury. Flashes of velo and sharp CB give ingredients of an upper-level 'pen depth piece w/ chance for cup of coffee in middle relief. Don't see the carry tool that keeps him in the big legaues full time at peak.
