81-83; mixes to both sides; moderate arm speed with good feel; late tumbling action.
73-75; show-me pitch; started to use third time through order; lacks depth; early break.
Eshelman has plus control of his arsenal, with potentially plus command as well, so while nothing in his pitch mix currently grades out as better than average, the ability to throw strikes with it all helps everything play up.
