Slim, athletic build with slight projection left; starts from a semi-windup, three-quarters slot, plus arm speed, efficient motion with mild effort, clean finish, athletic deceleration; fields position well
Generates velocity with plus arm speed, straight and heavy; locates well, will elevate to generate strikeouts
Shows arm side run and some weight, will run in on the hands of right handed hitters, trusts pitch, will throw in hitters counts
Still developing feel, inconsistent arm speed replication, good velocity separation, showed late fade, some swing-and-miss potential
11-to-5 movement; when right has depth and bite; inconsistent, will lose shape on occasion; lacks command
Cease is a quality starting pitching prospect. He shows four potentially major league average or better pitches. His delivery is clean with only mild effort which project plus command in the future. If the change and curve can continue to improve he could develop into a high No. 3 starter. Without that development, there is still enough in his stuff to become a valuable bullpen arm.
