Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 65 93-95 96 Life to pitch; strong arm-side run, with late finish and hop; offering displays good movement; pitcher will leave ball up, where it runs back into the middle of the plate for right-handed batters; likes to challenge hitters; capable of getting it under the hands of both righties and lefties; ability to induce weak contact and late swings; heavily dependent on the pitch - good hitters will time unless consistently spotted.
Slider 50 84-85 85 Short, late break; snaps pitch from similar angle as fastball; potential to miss bats due to separation in velocity between heater; strong option against left-handed hitters.

Left-hander with a live arm; reliever all the way; appeared to be focusing on sharpening fastball command - pumped pitch for majority of the outing; intriguing due to fastball velocity and movement; see getting a shot at the majors at some point; believe capable of getting high leverage outs; feel could settle into 6th/7th inning reliever role.
