3/4 upbeat delivery. Back stab and head jerk; throws with effort. Hides ball; some natural deception.
Reading Fightin Phils (AA, Phillies)
40; #5 starter/middle reliever
Tail and sink down; flattens out up. Misses up. Command drops at higher end of velo. FB doesn't miss many bats.
11-5; some downer action but no real bite. Too soft. Effective as mix-up/change of pace.
10-4 slurvy. Can throw for strikes consistently. Flashes as effective chase.
Sink and fade. Thrown with good arm speed. Good feel for the pitch.
Lively projects as a #5 starter or middle reliever who fills the zone with a four pitch mix of near average pitches. His high effort, high maintenance delivery limits his command profile. No real plus offering.
