Slender, athletic frame; long legs; strength concentrated in butt and thighs. Excellent arm speed. 3/4 rhp with some effort in his delivery. Hides ball and deceptive front side with shoulder tilt. Inconsistent release point; often lands on stiff front leg; rushes and front shoulder sometimes leaks open. Shoulder heavy delivery; doesn’t use lower half well and keeps weight back; finishes up; both impairs command profile and a long term health concern.
