Physical Description
Tall, lanky frame w/ avg build. Long arms+legs aid natural deception.

NWU, stretch only; funky shoulder tilt w/ high+closed front side to hide the ball; short strider w/ hard landing that impacts ability to repeat. Soft plunge arm-circle into H3/4 slot.

Fastball Command
Fastball Command 30 40 Spray command, often out of the zone but most misses were low. Would pay for lack of command more against better hitters.

Slider
Slider 40 45 82 82-85 Rolling SL w/ long down action. Tunnels well off FB. Won't miss bats but flashes chance to develop into workable breaking ball.

ChangeUp
ChangeUp 30 40 87 87-88 Limited feel and confidence, only showed sparingly to RHH. Too firm and lacks much movement. Could scrap it in situational role, no more than a future show-me wrinkle even w/ development.

Control
Control 30 40 Battles to repeat delivery and loses the zone at times. Inconsistent strikes. Can fall behind and put on too many runners. Shows sequences of FB/SL around the plate but needs to limit walks more effectively to fill regular ML 'pen role.

Overall Summary
Size, velocity, and deception give upside of lefty 'pen piece that excels in matchup situations. Will wind up a 4A/upper-level depth piece if he can't iron out mechanics and control.
