Pitch Type Present Grade Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 60 70 95-96 98 Features tailing action when in a groove on the pitch in the mid 90s, will elevate the pitch and straighten out when in the high 90s. Ability to mix the movement and velocity leads to it becoming a potentially plus-plus pitch with consistent reps. Will miss down at times.
SL 45 60 77-78   Ability to manipulate pitch from hard horizontal break that's almost frisbee like, can back it up for late movement into the zone or push out for it to dive at lefties feet. Great feel with the pitch and is confident enough to manipulate as he sees fit.
CH 40 55 87   Great separation from fastball, firm with fade and tumble on the pitch as it mirrors his fastball with a 10 mph difference, will miss down, confident with pitch to righties and lefties.
Overall

Upside of good number three pitcher; risk factor makes power reliever very possible. Ability to throw all three for strikes, confident with all pitches, needs more reps with repeating delivery and will be a starter if he can find more consistency. High-upside arm, risk factor is very high but stuff is there. Has the makings for everything to come together soon.
