Fastball 80 80 97-99 101 FB 97-99 T101, flat, lacks plane, abv average control.
Slider 45 60 82-84 84 SL 82-84, slurvy inconsistent offering; tended to get on side of pitch; flashed plus with hard tilt and bite; good control
Changeup 35 40 87-89 89 CH 87-89; fade with deceptive arm speed; doesn't sell well; telegraphed.
Overall

1.38-1.47 out of stretch. Good control of arsenal and has a good idea on how to pitch; needs more consistency with the breaking ball; has the ceiling of a 3/4 starter but I see as a high-leverage reliever, definite interest.

Control- 55/55
Command- 40/45
