FB 70 70 96 97 overpowers hitters up in the zone; misses tend to be high to armside; maintains from stretch; armside run to both sides of plate; lacks downhill plane
SL 45 50 82 84 inconsistent two-plane break; 3/4 tilt; tendency to leave up in zone
CH 50 55 84 85 will leave up, but flashes plus fade; maintains arm speed
CONTROL 50 55     works in upper part of zone but able to get calls; not plagued by walks
Overall

Reliever with setup potential featuring plus-plus FB and AVG offspeed offerings. FB up to 97 with armside run. Able to throw for strikes to both sides of the plate (painted gloveside corner on consecutive pitches to strikeout LHH). SL flashes two plane break, though inconsistent. CH a swing and miss offering playing off big FB. Control/command are both AVG to above AVG. Quick mover in the system after 2015 draft. Could work his way into valuable bullpen role, possibly 8th inning setup spot.
