Pitch Type Present Grade Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 40 40 89 91 Below-avg velocity. Most fastballs had avg armside run, occasionally showing short cutting movement due to arm-stroke's cross-body finish. Difficulty settling in early in the outing: most misses were down but command still wavered.
Splitter 45 45 86 87 Hard splitter he uses like a change-up; too firm and can run into his fastball at times w/ nearly 2sm fastball-like action. Hard, diving armside movement away from RHH. Relied heavily first time through lineup, not showing breaking ball until the lineup turned over.
Curveball 40 40 72 75 Third pitch. Soft, loopy curveball w/ big hump in it. Below-average pitch that could be exposed at big league level.
Overall

Finesse lefty; lacks plus command or pitchability to parlay his below-average stuff into a consistent big league role. Good competitor who profiles best as an innings-eater for a high-minors club. Lacks the out pitch or angle/deception to be a LOOGY option, though has best-case ceiling of an emergency spot-starter/longman at MLB level.
