Slider
Slider 40 45 83-84 82-86 Plunged, complex arm action hinders consistency of SL. Has its flashes but most are fringy spinners w/ short tilt. Can develop it some, but won't ever miss bats.

Control
Control 40 40 FB-heavy approach, raw velo overpowers A-Ball bats but won't be able to lean on his heater as much against better hitters.
