Reliever delivery, moderate effort. NWU only; long stride and hard, heel-first landings consistently pull down the mound to 1B side. Strong, stiff arm-stroke through OT slot; lengthy, wrapped arm in the back and recoiled arm bounce after release give trouble with SL.
Plus natural velocity from physical power-pitcher frame. Ranged 93-96 w/ overall heaviness to ball and avg arm-side run. Never will pitch w/ true command to spots in the zone; basic control can be inconsistent as well. On-and-off strike-thrower.
Relied on CH more than SL. Flashed abv-avg action w/ good velo separation off FB and late turnover to arm-side at best. Overall will play as avg pitch; shows too early and over-fades in to RHH when front side of delivery flies open and he's pulled off-line.
Fringy overall pitch; best SLs will occasionally flash fair velocity and depth; wrapped, stiff arm-action gives trouble bringing 50-grade SL out consistently. Third pitch.
Despite being older AA player, see best-case ceiling as low-leverage middle-reliever for non-contenting club. More realistic profile is that of an up-and-down and/or high-minors 'pen arm, lacking the consistent control and secondary action to fit a regular big league MR profile. Former early pick who has experienced more success since moving to bullpen in 2015.
