3/4 right hander with plus arm speed; free and easy arm action but somewhat compact extension. Sidestep windup. Deceptive front side but flashes ball behind him with hip slap pickup leading to slight stab; small head jerk as he releases; recovers well and repeats relatively well anyway; excellent athlete.
Harrisburg Senators (AA, Nationals)
50; No. 4 Starting Pitcher
Two seam and four seam. Plus life; sink and tail; misses bats in any quadrant and up. 45 command; sometimes finishes up on a stiff front leg and FB rides up and over the plate. Pitch as raw stuff grades out higher (65+), but plays down because of command and pitchability issues; doesn’t attack hitters. Reluctant to pitch inside; nibbles.
11-5 shallow slurve; inconsistent spin. Plus feel and average command; plays with depth; can shorten up to throw for strikes and also will throw as chase when ahead.
Circle change; above average life. Average feel and thrown with good arm speed. Not enough separation from FB velo band.
50; No. 4 Starting Pitcher. Three above average pitches but command, pitchability and consistency limit effectiveness.
