Overall Summary
Athletic-bodied RHSP with a three-pitch mix. Plus fastball, elite curveball, and below-average changeup at present. Below average command and control profile as expected from long limbs. Curveball was so good and consistent this outing that he may be able to get by without much of a changeup if he can maintain consistency with the pitch. However, the lack of third pitch and overall command and control profile limits his ceiling. Future #3 starter. Still just 22 years old, and he should be given every opportunity to develop as a starter; yet a future move to the pen would not be a huge surprise if he doesn't develop a serviceable third offering.
