Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 45 87-89 91 Worked mostly at 88 mph; good angle but not a lot of movement; showed ability to throw strikes; worked east/west; good pitchability; no fear to attack hitters with below-average velocity; not a major league quality primary pitch; could improve slightly with sharper command.
CH 50 81-82 82 Best pitch; good arm speed and deception; good arm-side fading action; shows confidence in pitch; effective but not a bat missing offering.
CB 45 73-74 75 Slow, slurvy breaking ball; can flip it over for a strike; long break but high leg and quirky delivery hides the arm a bit from RH; likely to play below-average; too soft.

Crafty lefty with pitchability and poise; stuff is below-average; more control than command; body is immature but lacks physical projection; fastball is effective for what it is; mostly 88 but he can work most sides of the plate; changeup was good pitch; chance to be average; not a weapon but enough deception and movement to be effective; breaking ball can be thrown for strikes but its soft and slurvy; lacks arsenal for major league future; upper minors arm in either starter/relief role; type to stick around the game for a long time.
