Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 60 89-93 94 Arm-side run; command is fringy; often lives up in the zone; cut/sink; mostly 91-93; heavy pitch; can come inside to righties; 94 only once.
SL 55 83-86 87 Some tilt; shorter break than most SL; some good vertical drop; two-plane break; can manipulate it; can spike it.
CH 50 79-83 84 Lacked plus movement the first start; better in the second; had more 2-seam sinking action; maintains arm speed well; deception is there; inconsistent with command; left up too often.

Windle gets by with a plus fastball and a solid ability to sequence. Unfortunately, the secondary stuff isn't eye-popping and often is left over the plate and hittable. While he holds his velocity just fine, I see a better fit for him in the bullpen, where hopefully the fastball can rise a few ticks and the slider can become more of a weapon.
