Over the top, but clean arm action, big shoulder tilt at separation and delivery. Emphasized but balanced follow through. Oddly paced fast-slow-fast-slow delivery. Large frame.

Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 50 90-94 94 Over the top arm actions occasionally gives it just a tough of rising action, but mostly flat. Big shoulder tilt plus arm action means that the pitch is best thrown way up or way down in the zone, but he also misses way up or way down. Some deception because of the delivery.
Curveball 55 78-82 82 Big pitch with tons of vertical movement. Mere shape of the pitch alone freezes hitters. 12/6 action, sells well.
Slider/Cutter 50 80-88 89 Super firm pitch with big velo range. More of a show-you-something-else pitch at the moment, but the feel and command for the pitch were decent.
Changeup 45     Only threw a small handful of times. Command wasn't there. Pitch in development.

Curveball is best pitch right now. The over the top arm slot and big action really throw hitters off. I'm a bit lower on him in terms of his ability to start. The strikeouts are there, but so are the walks and wild pitches. I'm lower on him in terms of his ability to start. It comes down to whether you believe in the third offering or not. I really like the curveball, gives him a good chance to be at least a bullpen arm.
