Bats: Right Throws: Right
Height: 6' 3" Weight: 190
Mechanics
Body: Large workhorse frame; broad across upper-half, durable core and legs, features of hard-throwing pitcher

Delivery: Slow tempo, semi-wind; tall leg kick, moderate effort from active back-leg drive; lands closed and works slightly across body, mild noise at finish, crossfire landing causes backside to swing around hard and pulls him off-line at release; room to make adjustments

Arm Action: Slight plunge; off-line circle that wraps and shows behind body; arm has lengthy path to get to extension, plus arm speed to occasionally catch up through slot

Pitch Type Present Grade Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 60 65 93-95 97 Above-average raw arm strength, touching 97 and routinely grabbing 94-95 early in outings; naturally heavy ball, flashes above-average bore and run to arm side; lively power pitch, plays as a blow-by; projection to play a tick better with improved command in zone and/or transition to late-innings role
Slider 45 55 82-85 86 Power mid-80's slider, shows above-average at best with late, crisp glove-side action and two-plane tilt; loses feel for it upon occasion, bouncing it or backing it up; projects to play as solid secondary offering off fastball with continued pro development and reps
Changeup 40 45 82-83 85 Third pitch, sporadic use, fringy feel, still working to incorporate into arsenal; occasional arm speed sell out front, moderate fade, slows arm and guides; hittable at times
Control 40 45     Falls in and out of playable control/command for a starter; fastball has more basic control than command, better ability to land it to arm side; sporadic feel to land slider for strikes, most effective when working ahead with fastball to induce chase swings on breaking ball; will likely need to hold overpowering raw stuff to offset fringy command in a starting role
Overall

Best-Case Role: Power sinker/slider mid-rotation starter
Realistic Role: Middle Reliever

Strong-bodied frame; looks like a big-league workhorse with a solid fastball-slider mix. Developing the changeup and ironing out delivery will dictate starting or relief role. His power sinker could be a real weapon, and even if he's a two-pitch reliever the plus stuff gives him a high likelihood to fill a big-league role in some capacity.
