Physical Description
Short, muscular frame; barrel-chested w/ strong legs and core.
Mechanical Notes
SWU; closed landing w/ moderate effort throughout, though repeats well and finishes on-line. Compact arm-circle; pushy, low-elbow arm-stroke into 3/4 slot. RP look to mechanics, though hides the ball w/ some natural deception.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 40 45 88 86-89 Firm split-like action w/ flashes of promising late dive, though needs to take more off it. Runs into FB at times right now; chance to be usable third speed w/ improved separation.

Overall Summary
Short, hard-throwing RHP w/ stuff that projects better in the 'pen. Pitch efficiency and turning over lineups gives him trouble as a SP. Ceiling of three-pitch middle reliever, upside of 6th/7th inning type.
