Pitch Type Present Grade Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 70 80 95-98 99 FB 95-98 T99, late movement; pitches up in the zone; tough to square up; more control than command but is around zone enough.

Movement- 50/50
Slider 60 65 87-91 92 SL 87-91 T92; sharp break; lacks depth but has impressive tilt/cut action; plus offering with potential for higher; can be left up in zone.
Changeup 35 40 88-90 90 CH 88-90, firm pitch; has some arm speed on it but isn't comfortable with feel; some fade down in zone; usable v. LHH. Clear third pitch.
Overall

Future late-inning reliever with potential to close out games, needs to iron out some control issues and pitch down in the zone more as he pitches up and becomes hittable.

Command- 40/45
Control- 50/50
