Pitch Type Present Grade Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 60 70 90-96 97 Some sink/run, lacked feel for offering at times, at lower velo looked to aim pitch, but would let it go at 94-96, has definite arm strength.

Movement: 45/50
Slider 40 60 84-86 89 Plus-to-better offerings at higher velos, hard bite with late action, fooled both RHH and LHH, feel inconsistent.
Changeup 20 30 84-86 87 More like a BP fastball, definite third pitch.
Overall

Really intriguied by the arm strength, velo dropped later, but as a reliever, could be a 7 FB 6+SL, definite interest.

Command: 20/40
Control: 30/50
