Delivery: Abbreviated windup w/ back foot starting planted on the rubber; upper/lower halves fight each other; crossfire landings; gets soft on front side at times; consistent fall-off at finish. Full, fairly-lengthy circle in back; loose/fast arm through HTQ slot; significant arm recoil after release.
Sits 92-93 as starter, touches of 95; natural downhill angle from tall height and slot; occasional avg armside run. Delivery detracts ability to be fine within zone; doesn't have starter's command; FB has chance to work in 94-97 range if/when he moves to 'pen.
3/4 breaking ball; slurvy pitch somewhere between CB and SL; early-show and rolling tilt w/o sharp bite when he loses front side; struggles to land for strikes later in outings; fringy overall SL w/ chance to play avg when used in shorter stints.
Occasional decent flashes w/ one-plane, arm-side action; overall inconsistent pitch; telegraphs CH w/ slower arm-speed as he tires, causing CH to straighten out. Won't need as much in relief role.
Well below-avg true CB, used as second-look pitch; soft, loose hump; limited strikes; probably should scrap it; liability against ML bats.
Lacks the FB command and secondary stuff to turn lineups over as starter at ML level. See more realistic best-case ceiling as middle-reliever w/ mid-90s velocity and a SL that will play closer to avg in a short-stint role. High risk: needs to make 'pen conversion; injury flags in significant arm recoil.
