Physical Description
X-tall, narrow and lanky frame, athletic build w/ loose actions. Built like a young Andrew Miller (CLE).
Mechanical Notes
Controlled pace to semi-windup; tall leg lift w/ slight turn at the top; quiet landing, gets through delivery well. Free-and-easy operation, will repeat more consistently as he fills out. Full arm-circle w/ soft plunge in the back; fluid and deceptive L3/4 slot w/ excellent projection.

Fastball Value
Overall Fastball Value 45 55 All projection, but has the height/velo/command to start games w/ an above-avg FB. Effective pitch even if it isn't a huge bat-misser.

Fastball Velocity 55 60 91-92 90-95 Generates velocity effortlessly; already t94-95 at best early in games, settles in at 91-92; body and loose arm-stroke project to add velo as he fills out.

Fastball Movement
Fastball Movement 45 50 Flashes steep downhill plane when delivery is timed up. Flattens when he loses mechanics and sails FB, but will iron that out.

Fastball Command
Fastball Command 30 50 FB command improving as season progresses and he builds pro mound time. Flashes low strikes, usually armside. Will fall out of command and spray the zone like many young pitchers his height. Has what it takes to get in-zone location to average w/ more reps and development.

Slider
Slider 30 50 81 79-82 Needs to tighten SL for something to work against same-side bats. Presently a one-plane glider, used sparingly. Deep projection pitch; has tools to develop workable breaking ball.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 45 55 83-84 82-86 Best off-speed, good feel for CH; sells w/ armspeed and gets excellent velo separation off FB; consistent tumble action, flashes armside dive at best.

Control
Control 40 50 FB/CH are primary two pitches, SL is used less. Keeps FB around zone early in the count. Limited present pitchability: hard-to-slow on every hitter, uncomfortable pitching backwards. Mound presence/pitchability project to polish up w/ more pro mound time and experience.

Overall Summary
Risk/reward prospect w/ high-ceiling tools. Ingredients of a future mid-rotation starter, though requires projection across the board and is 3+ years from ML ready.
