Fastball Value
Overall Fastball Value 45 50 Projects to average, velocity gives the pitch some margin for error to armside, misses can be barreled.

Fastball Velocity 55 55 93 92-95 No projection left, no noticeable deception, lost tick late in outing, was late season look, should hold it into starts.

Fastball Movement
Fastball Movement 45 45 Running life to armside, but flat everywhere else in the zone. Limited plane, will get some sink when extending down to bottom of zone.

Fastball Command
Fastball Command 40 45 Better to armside, loses pitches up and out over the plate at present. Half-grade improvement possible with delivery refinement, emphasis staying closed.

Slider
Slider 45 50 85 83-87 Slurvy break, gets down action, doesn't have hard bite, works when he keeps it down, dangerous out over plate. Flashed ability to drop it in zone for MLB average, should get more consistent with reps.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 55 55 85 84-86 Best pitch; throws with conviction and arm speed, uses right on right. Plus separation from velocity creates deception, fade is average but pitch works to 55 with location down.

Control
Control 45 45 Works FB to edges to avoid damage, will fall behind. Can get strikes with change, will have slider around zone but overall fringy ability to control at bats.

Overall Summary
Average three-pitch repertoire will work in back of rotation on strength of above-average change up to get swing and miss and weak contact. Fringy command and control present risk; projects for slight uptick in command for stuff to work as SP.
