Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 50 90-92 94 Throws downhill and can create angle on the pitch; works 90-92; touches 94; some arm-side wiggle on the pitch; showed some strike-throwing ability early in the start; lost the delivery in the second inning and couldn't get back on track; finds too many barrels when he's in the zone; pitch plays down at present because of command; average potential in bursts.
CH 50 83-84 84 Decent pitch; good arm-side fade; limited sample but showed feel for the pitch; deception/action suggests average potential; delivery inconsistencies could limit pitch.
SL 50 82-84 84 Late with the release and across the body; loose and wild at 84; missed glove-side; showed better tilt and tighter spin at 82; flashed average potential; not a weapon pitch at projection.

Looks the part physically; fastball flashes plus velocity but below-average command drags the offering down; delivery was a mess; drifting, flying open and missing his release point; secondary arsenal showed average potential; similar command woes bring utility down; could see spike in stuff in bursts; not a rotation arm for me; lacks the arsenal and the pitchability; middle relief potential.
