Tall frame, athletic and wiry build. Long limbs.

Stretch only, slide-steps even without runners on. Easy to read, doesn't hide the ball, limited deception, givers hitters a good look. Plunged takeaway w/ wrist curl, 3/4 slot.

Control

Overall Summary
Dominating A-Ball, won't be able to lean on raw velocity as much against better hitters. FB gives high floor as middle reliever, a 6th/7th inning type. Lack of deception and/or above-avg secondary pitch stand in the way of him fitting high-leverage bullpen profile.
