features 2- and 4-seam; maintains from stretch; gets downhill with FB; 2-seam has heavy arm-side run, 4-seam stays straight
12-6 break; good depth; will flash plus--potential hammer; consistency and command the areas for development
slight cut; able to locate for strikes; not a putaway pitch
inconsistent fade and depth; will float at times with good action; consistency could make for above avg pitch
CONTROL: able to throw everything for strikes; consistency and reliability is the question
COMMAND: good feel for FB, though will leave over the plate to get ahead; CB and CH need work, but shows a good feel for them; CT moves but is hittable
Four AVG or better potential pitch mix from former 1st round pick. FB is plus and capable of generating good sink and run. CB has potential to be plus, with 12-6 action and plus depth, but inconsistent movement and command. Throws CT for strikes, but AVG offering at best. Shows feel for CH with fade and depth, potential to be above AVG. Control and command nearly AVG now. Future 3 starter, workhorse. Good competitor.
