Physical Description
Tall, built large and broad w/ durable strength throughout. Body type like Chad Green (NYY).
Mechanical Notes
Starts side-saddle and pitches from the stretch. Deceptive closed front side, jumps at hitters w/ a long stride. Compact arm-circle that doesn't show in the back, L3/4 slot. Plus deception, very tough look for righties.

Fastball Velocity 55 55 93-94 92-96 Plus velo, sits mid-90s and t96 early in outings. Would be 95-97 type airing it out in 'pen.

Fastball Command
Fastball Command 45 50 Able to work to lower third of the zone. Hits armside corner better than he comes across the plate. Future avg command as he learns how to set up high-level hitters.

Slider
Slider 50 55 83-84 82-85 Long tilt, above-avg bite at times. Big league slider already, future out pitch to RHH.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 40 50 87-88 87-90 Overthrows changeup, too firm. Gets short dive to armside at best, but inconsistent and floats it at times. Flashes avg but has a ways to go. Ability to remain a starter hinges on development of third speed.

Control
Control 40 50 FB and SL are primary pitches. Around zone w/ FB, developing ability to land SL for strikes. Needs a full three pitch mix to face ML lefties and turn lineups over.

Overall Summary
Unusual mechanics and approach for a starter, but has the ceiling of a #4 rotation piece if third pitch can develop. Fallback of effective setup (7th inning) type reliever who is an especially tough matchup to RHH.
