High three-quarters arm slot; above-average arm speed; repeats slot; smooth tempo; crossfire delivery but limits upper-body rotation; can cast pitches and lose extension; doesn't consistently take advantage of height/length; long levers; starting to fill out projectable frame; good starter's body.
Fringe-average command; slight arm-side run; flashes downhill plane with life; settles 88-92 after a couple innings but consistently reaches back for 94 deep into start; works both sides with confidence; consistently locates arm side; glove-side command a tick behind; differing effectiveness from fringy in-zone command; hittable up and on plate
Average feel; plus depth; above-average bite; 1/7 downward action; out pitch with bite when spun tightly; change-of-pace with slow break when loose; needs to consistently tighten for true 60 effectiveness in upper levels
Fringe-average feel; average fade flashes late; arm action produces deception; occasionally casts and floats into zone; projection pitch with framework to reach above-average
Fried's biggest concern right now is staying healthy and gaining feel for his stuff after Tommy John surgery. The stuff is still there. He has three pitches that all flash plus and two could reach that grade consistently with a third just behind. He has command struggles despite an easy delivery, and his feel for pitching comes and goes. The goal is to get used to a body that's filling out and gain feel for his release over time. Fried will require patience, but the end result could be special.
