Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 55 89-90 92 Good command; throws for strikes; keeps ball down; good GB/FB ratio.
CB 55 74-75 75 Repeats arm speed; good break; tight spin; ability to spot and command pitch on demand; has ability to improve pitch some.
CH 50 80-82 84 Shows repetition of arm speed; inconsistent release points; command not as good as primary pitches; lacks confidence in pitch; continued work and development could make pitch average

Lack of size and above-average secondary pitches probably makes him a middle reliever and/or a fifth starter. He lacks size and his body type lacks projection. However, that has been said about many pitchers. His ability to command his two best pitchers could have him on a MLB roster for years as situational guy.
Control- 45/50
Command- 45/50
