keeps around the zone; will get overly reliant on pitch; maintains velocity from the stretch; some downhill from release point, but pitch stays straight; slight run at times
sharp bite; depth over sweeping action
some fade with plus drop; still developing feel and consistency--has promise of above avg pitch with swing and miss ability
walks have been a struggle historically; FB around zone, off-speed relies on chasing
FB stays up in zone; keeps off-speed low, but lacks consistency and feel
Plus FB with potential AVG off-speed offerings from former 1st round pick. FB gets heavy use, relies more on velocity than movement. Tends to be around zone or over the heart of the plate. SL has bite with depth. CH flashes above average--fade with drop. Needs to develop consistency to throw for strikes to take step forward. Control is most glaring issue. Improved strike throwing could push him to being a decent 4 starter. As is, likely a fringe 5 in rotation or long man in bullpen. Young enough to gamble on.
