Delivery: Slow-paced semi wind-up; tall leg kick and long gather at top of delivery; effort in finish w/ consistent pull off-line after release; front side opens up early, gets away from arm at release. Reliever's mechanics.
Arm Action: Electric arm speed; plus-plus quickness and strength to arm-stroke through 3/4 slot. Injury/command concerns: arm does all the work; long in the back; effort and recoil after release.
Special arm speed generates natural double-plus velocity. Sits 95-96 in starting role, even late into outings, scraping the upper 90s. Explosive bursting life to FB w/ hop and arm-side run when working at the top of the zone. "Thrower" w/ overwhelming velocity; lacking command within zone; likely will always need to overpower; tough to project on command w/ shorter frame and max-effort finish.
Hard CB w/ flashes of tight spin and two-plane depth at best; likely finishes an average pitch; length to arm action and recoil can make it inconsistent on off nights. Seen it good once, bad another; on-and-off pitch at this point in his development.
Hard, late-tumbling split-like action that dives down/away from LHB; good arm speed sell in front; best ones have swing-and-miss action playing off plus fastball. Lots of confidence in CH; good feel for third pitch for power arm; used to both RHB and LHB.
Fails into sequences of poor command within the zone, falling behind hitters and into fastball counts. Room to still make some mechanical adjustments, but control/command still likely profiles best in a shorter-exposure role.
Short, big-velocity, explosive RHP; dominant fastball paired w/ two solid secondary pitches. Wouldn't write him off as starter quite yet, but see more likely big-league role as a high-leverage reliever, where velocity and three pitch mix could make him a valuable bullpen piece.
