Physical Description
XL frame w/ tall, lanky body type. Fairly physically immature, more room to add strength than most prospects his age.
Mechanical Notes
NWU, stretch only; full arm-circle w/ slight peek in the back; loose 3/4 arm-stroke w/ moderate recoil after release. Free-and-easy overall operation, but issues repeating limit present control. Too deliberate from stretch, will need to learn to work from the windup.

Fastball Command
Fastball Command 30 40 Scattered within the zone, lost the plate altogether for spells. Can project on command slightly given loose operation and projectable body type.

Slider
Slider 30 40 82 81-83 Loose roller w/ wide, gliding shape. Three-quarters tilt that gets slurvy. Best ones showed two-plane depth, will need to get on top of it more to find consistent action.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 30 40 84 84-85 Crude third pitch, shows more to LHH. Light circle action w/ limited present feel, lacks confidence in it now. Can come on a bit w/ more reps.

Overall Summary
Lottery ticket that's more wildcard than true prospect. Frame, projection, and fastball make him a follow. Has a ways to go before carrying a ML grade, but could look much different w/ more pro reps once he fills out.
