Fastball Value
Overall Fastball Value 40 50 Shows glimpses of solid big league FB when he has best velo and movement.

Fastball Velocity 50 55 94 92-97 Velocity fluctuates, saw 94-97 one outing and 92-93 the next. Much better chance to fill full-time ML 'pen role if he's working at the high end of velo range.

Curveball
Curveball 40 40 76 75-77 Show-me breaker he wrinkles in, more to LHH. Soft, loopy pitch that shouldn't be more than a surprise pitch.

Slider
Slider 40 45 83 82-85 Inconsistent SL, flashes sharp bite at best but backs up on him at times. Tough to project full grade up given his age, but can finish a playable breaking ball.

Cutter
Cutter 40 40 90 89-91 Shows occasional cut-type FB w/ short gloveside action. Not a primary part of his arsenal but keeps hitters guessing.

Control
Control 45 50 Advanced control for relief-only prospect at this level, four pitches consistently around the zone. FB/SL two main offerings, establishes strike one, limits walks and gets ahead in counts. Control and arsenal depth are separators that give chance to reach ceiling.

Overall Summary
Flashes of velocity and control of deep pitch mix for a 'pen arm give best-case upside of middle reliever, potentially able to go multiple innings. Will finish upper-level 'pen depth/4A callup type if no one aspect carries the profile at ML level.
