Physical Description
Short, stocky frame w/ softness through the middle. Already fairly physically developed; limited athlete who will need to keep body in check.
Mechanical Notes
SWU, tall leg kick w/ slight turn at the top, uncoils down the mound and falls off-line at release but repeats well. Full arm-circle into H3/4 slot. Delivery isn’t the prettiest or most athletic but works for him.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 45 50 82-83 82-84 Best pitch, separator. Advanced feel, throws at armspeed and mimics FB. Eats up A-Ball competition, projects as effective weapon at ML level.

Control
Control 45 50 Best attribute, unique ability to fill the zone and limit walks for a pitcher his age. Gets ahead w/ FB early and lands all secondaries for strikes. Will need to nibble and pitch outside the zone more at higher levels given limited stuff.

Overall Summary
Unique teenage RHP w/ more polish and control/command than stuff. Pitchability gives the ceiling of a longman/spot-starter, a #5 SP in the best-case scenario. Don't see the stuff here to fit as a true rotation piece for a contender. Will wind up a 4A/upper-minors type if stuff backs up at all. Less upside than many young arms but has a higher floor as well.
