Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 60 93-95 96 Suffers from lack of command at present and too often comes in straight and middle, but has life when located up in the zone and armside run when located in to RHH. I've also spotted occasional gloveside cut. Flashes enough and there's enough command projection to give the pitch a future plus grade.
Curveball 60 77-79 80 Best pitch. True curve that always comes in 12-6 or 11-5 with good bite. Throws consistently for strikes and gets swings and misses in the dirt. Already adept at pitching backwards, which increases the effectiveness of his heater.
Changeup 50 82-84 85 Doesn't throw a lot but showed for me as the most promising of his tertiary pitches. Flashes above average with late dive and a bit of fade.
Slider 50 81-83 84 Has short and late movement, is used sparsely but could be an interesting change of pace from his curve and an added weapon against LHH.

Has two potential plus pitches and I see the command coming so this could be a mid-rotation starter's profile. The risks are that the command doesn't improve as it should, the presently weaker offerings don't produce a dependable third pitch, or some combination of the two.
