Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 70 96-98 100 Cuts at times, shape and command below-average, but swing and miss pitch when he's getting it steep and down in the zone.
CU 60 78-80 80 Good 12-6 shape, but can snap it off at times, shows late downer action, confident enough to throw it 3-2 for a strikeout. Works it north-south well for his experience level.
SL 55 81-83 83 Slurvier action than the curveball, more 11-5, bores in/away, threw it more but the curve was presently ahead and showed more S+M shape.
CH 40 89-90 90 Firm with some fade, lacks arm speed.

High upside 2021 prep arm that can beat A-ball hitters with his fastball, with enough breaking ball command to back it up. Raw and projectable arsenal/frame, could go in a number of directions and is currently on the IL for what the Phillies have termed "load management."
