Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 55 92-94 96 Straight w/ good ride/life. Will miss bats up in the zone & tunnels well w/ curveball when on. Fringe-average command. Plus pitch in short outings, strong above-average offering over a full start.
Curveball 60 79-81 83 Go-to secondary. Sharp, late 12/6 break at its best w/ big depth. Will get around it from time to time, but it tunnels nicely off the fastball when on. Ingredients are here for a plus, swing/miss offering.
Cutter 50 87-89 91 Third offering that he is beginning to turn to more frequently. Sharp, short 2/8 horizontal break. Velo differential & movement helps him miss barrels. Solid-average offering w/ additional upside.

Age & a Tommy John Surgery in his past create relief risk, but all the ingredients are here for a no. 4 starter & he would profile as a high-leverage bullpen arm if he is forced to go that route.
