Fastball Command
Fastball Command 30 40 Max effort thrower, sprays all around the zone, velocity bails him out over the plate, but will always need to throw hard to have success.

Slider
Slider 30 50 82-83 80-84 Wrinkle pitch right now, flashes ingredients of big league SL. Approach and effort might be better suited to switch to SL. Want to see him refine the pitch.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 40 50 84-85 83-88 Consistent separation off his FB w/ flashes of late armside action. Will be effective secondary pitch if he can keep it around the zone w/ more regularity.

Control
Control 30 40 Current walk numbers are better than his actual control. Often behind in counts, limited first pitch strikes, off-speed wouldn't be as effective against high-level bats b/c he can only expand the zone, not land for early-count strikes.

Overall Summary
Elite velocity is a separator and makes him a prospect. Middle relief ceiling--despite power fastball, lacks the control or secondary pitches for true leverage situations. Risk to profile, will fall short of ceiling if he can't improve delivery or throw more strikes.
