Starter's delivery; side-steps into SWU w/ slight hip-turn at the top of leg kick. Over-rotates upper-half w/ closed front-arm to hide the ball. Minimal effort at finish, though back leg occasionally swings around hard and pulls him off-line down 1B side of mound.

Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 35 86 90 Well below-avg velocity; 85-90 whole outing. Solid basic strike-thrower; consistently around strike zone w/ FB; pitches w/ control more than command.
Curveball 40 72 74 Slows arm to cast a soft, loopy, rolling CB that shows early w/ big hump in it. Below-avg pitch.
Changeup 40 80 81 Dangerously-hittable at times; overall below-avg CH. Mostly a straight-CH that floated and remained around middle-quadrants of the zone.

Durable 6'5 frame, throws strikes w/ three below-avg pitches. Utility to pro organization lies in ability to eat low-minors innings and keep team in the game. ORG filler. Non-prospect.
