Pitches from a semi-wind, long arm action with avg arm speed to a 3/4 slot, lower slot can lead to some difficulties in repeating delivery but looks natural to him, average athlete.

Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 60 91-92 93 Plus run, tough to square up, makes for uncomfortable at-bats v. RHH, primary pitch for him, struggled to control pitch and was scattershot in both viewings, plus overall offering.
Slider 50 82-84 84 Threw a true CB last year but has shelved it now for this SL, short action with mild depth, sometimes got around pitch and became sweepy and flat, at best showed hard action and depth with tilt, can improve going forward as it flashed avg in 2nd viewing, future average offering.
Changeup 55 86-87 88 Used to both sides, repeated arm speed, mimicked movement on FB, tough for hitters to recognize out of hand, was K pitch in both viewings, future above-average offering.

See as a back-end starter, 23-year-old RHSP, had TJ after signing in 2015, has been healthy since, intriguing arsenal of plus FB with plus life, future average SL and above-average CH, high-risk as he doesn't always repeat delivery and struggles to throw strikes, strong interest.
