CB 55 60 80 82 1-7, big breaker; flattens out at times, but mostly plus depth; able to locate in the zone or bury to generate chases
CH 45 50 80 83 slight, crisp fade; softer version of sinker; locates well to armside; command still improving
CONTROL 50 55     walks haven't been a big detractor thusfar; FB struggles to gloveside; throws offspeed for strikes
Overall

Plus CB from smaller framed lefty. Former 1st rounder, return for Brandon Moss. FB is future average pitch showing hard sink and slight run. Will drop slot to work to gloveside, where he struggles with command/control. CB is future plus w/ big 1-7 break. CH a softer version of sinker. Command an issue, but should be avg 3rd pitch. Competitive nature overcomes smaller stature. 21 and working effectively at AA. Potential 3 starter, but likely 4 starter.
