Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 65 93-94 95 easy velocity, locates for strikes; room to add to sitting speed; maintains from stretch; gets downhill with arm-side run to both sides of plate
CB 65 82 83 10-5 movement; sharp, 2-plane slurvy action; late horizontal movement; will change shape with less velo
CH 60 84 84 plus fading action; will use mostly to armside; good separation from FB
CONTROL 60     will pitch himself into trouble, but locates everything for strikes consistently

Front-end rotation starter with three present plus pitches. Easy athleticism is fully on display. Free and loose on the mound. Entire pitch mix generates swings and misses. Fastball is sneaky with room to add. Curveball is plus and could tick up with consistency locating to glove-side of plate. Change has plus fade and separation from fastabll. Plus feel and control. Should be a highly capable no. 2/3 starter for most teams. An elite talent.
