Pitch Type Present Grade Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 50 55 90-92 93 Fastball 90-92 T93, sinking action; deceptive with arm action; fair control.

Movement- 45/45
Curveball 30 40 76-77 77 Curveball 76-77; lacks tight shape; fair depth but loopy; needs better arm speed and to reach out more; effective at this level; not in zone.
Changeup 60 60 76-78 78 Changeup 76-78; plus pitch; split like action; large separation from FB; late tumble; thrown at arm speed which helps pitch play up.
Slider 30 40 82-83 85 Slider 82-83 T85; lacks sharpness; frisbee break; needs better shape; in early stages of development; primarily v. LHH; should get better with arm speed and repetitions.
Overall

Projectable SP with a plus changeup and a potential above-average fastball combination. Needs a breaking ball to step up to be a back-end rotation guy. Features reverse splits and will need to be more effective v. LHH to be a rotation piece.

Command- 40/50
Control- 50/55
