small build and frame; don’t think he’ll ever add weight; keeps good balance through delivery; deep arm circle with extremely fast arm to high ¾ arm slot; stays closed a long time and possibly cuts off hips early; creates good downhill plane surprisingly from short frame; makes up for everything with extremely fast arm.

Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 60 94-96 97 big downhill plane; lacks movement; commands well to arm-side, needs work to glove side.
CB 55 74-76 77 12-6 shape; showed depth and bite; broke early a few times and hitters could see it; flashes plus; inconsistent with command; presently has trouble throwing for a strike.

Bullpen arm all the way but has a good combination. The FB is fairly straight but is premium velo and has big plane. The CB flashes plus and could get there eventually with command improvement.
