Fastball Command
Fastball Command 40 45 Around the plate but elevated often. More command at 91-92 than higher end of velo range. Can project up due to athletic operation.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 40 45 82-83 81-83 Inconsistent but found it more as outing progressed. Best ones have FB armspeed and circle action; floats when he doesn’t finish it.

Control
Control 40 45 FB-heavy approach, keeps heater around the plate more than secondary. Needs more to remain a SP. Engaged, competitive mound presence.

Overall Summary
Tools of a backend SP in the best case, though off-speed and pitchability have a ways to go. FB could really play up in a ‘pen role. Interesting projection arm; age/proximity add risk.
