Role 45; Situational Reliever
Velocity plays slightly higher because of arm stroke and fast arm; lacks command of offering can throw strikes in spurts; lives up in the zone frequently; offering has natural life that keeps the ball from being squared.
Likes to use pitch; will throw in any count; prefers to come back after getting ahead with fastball; short, sharp break of 12-6 variety; not a classic bat-misser but has some ability to get whiffs; induces weak contact and keeps guys from sitting dead red.
Thrown with velocity; tight rotation is infrequent; lacks control; mostly a chase pitch to LHH; threw infrequently; better off focusing on FB and CB.
Obvious relief profile; CB and deception allow him to handle RHH as well as LHH; aggressive arm that comes in and just throws; won't back down; can get in trouble when control escapes him; control has to improve to have reliable bullpen role; shows stuff and fire for an MLB future.
