Pitch Type Present Grade Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 60 70 93 96 mostly 92-96, will slow arm at times; visible, high contact offering; works within zone, though misses most frequently to gloveside; heavy use up in zone; should tick up in shorter stints; maintains from stretch; downhill from release, but straight
CB 45 50 79 82 11-5, two-plane, slurvy break; struggles to throw for strikes, but misses are low
CH 40 45 82 87 mostly straight with some drop; slows arm and motion to throw; struggles to locate and misses up
CONTROL 55 60     limits walks; struggles to control offspeed, will get FB dominant to work in zone

COMMAND: 40/45
FB command, but lacks movement or deception; CH misses are high and future disasters; CB shows better shape warming up--will overthrow in game
Overall

Plus to Plus-Plus FB with lackluster offspeed offerings from future reliever. 21 year old RHP acquired in Corey Dickerson trade with Tampa. FB is straight with some downhill action from release. Hitters see it and make a lot of contact. CB is slurvy and inconsistent; break can range from flashing tight and sharp to dull and overthrown. CH is a limited 3rd option. Shows ability for plus control, but command off offspeed hurts ability to remain a starter. Delivery really lacks use of lower half and can be a tell for use of offspeed. Still young enough to develop and improve. See as a middle reliever with a big FB.
