Fastball
Fastball 50 55 89-92 92 Firm in the zone with small tail to both sides. Will turn it over and get some late action down in the zone. Majority arm side, but showed some ability to extend and get to glove side. Athletic arm action and delivery, can see him adding arm strength.

Slider
Slider 40 50 80-82 82 Short, 3/4 break. Fringy depth, gets cutterish, but showed a couple with some late bite. Misses stay down; arm action adds some deception, plays up slightly.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 45 55 80-82 82 Circle dive, will get some late bottom. Really turns it over and has confidence with it. Arm action sells it and has some feel to use in the zone. Out pitch; chance to get to above average.

Overall Summary
Left-handed reliever who has an athletic delivery with some deception, present arm strength, and feel for an above-average changeup. Chance to be effective vs. both LHH and RHH. Throws strikes and stays down in the zone. Can get the fastball to the glove side OK. Below-average command right now, but see him getting to fringe average. Changeup is a real weapon vs. RHH. Very new to the mound, recently converted OF in 2016; can see him building some arm strength and adding some velo as he gets more reps. Has some smooth effort in the delivery, but athletic enough to repeat it. Non-roster invite candidate for 2017 Spring Training.
