Changeup       No CH thrown this outing, have had fair reports this year.

Poor outing but still showcased two potential plus pitches, his lack of command hurt him as he got hurt hard over middle of the plate. Would like to see CH for a better report but still has mid-rotation potential. Needs to build up IP workload to reach that potential. Still has a relatively high floor as a late-inning reliever.
