Pitch Type Present Grade Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 70 70 95 97 easy velocity that sits 95-96, holds deep into games; uses to both sides of plate with consistency; control/command is above avg to plus; maintains from stretch; slight downhill plane from release; flashes slight armside run to both sides of plate; more reliant on velo than movement
CB 50 60 81 82 11-5 action, flashes late break and depth; avg control, but command and consistency of break necessary to be plus offering
CH 45 50 88 90 hard CH that plays off plus-plus FB; slight fade but mostly straight; ability to take more off pitch without sacrificing armspeed necessary to being avg pitch
CONTROL 55 60     locates everything for consistent strikes; limits walks
Overall

Big armed righty with potential for AVG to plus offspeed offerings. FB is plus-plus with ease. Plus control and command of pitch that holds velocity into later innings. CB flashes plus with late movement. Depth and shape are inconsistent, but is a potential out pitch. CH is straight and firm, but plays off big FB. Delivery very dependent on upper body and arm, lacks drive from lower half. Has the potential to be a strong 3 in a rotation if CB continues developing, dominant reliever if FB remains his primary weapon.
