medium build, good lower half; front side stays closed then explodes to plate; stays tall through delivery and can land on stiff front leg; deep arm action but super fast arm; repeats delivery; comes from high ¾ slot creating extreme plane; hides ball a long time, tough to pickup.
Frisco RoughRiders (AA, Rangers)
50; late innings reliever
premium velocity with extreme plane; had a few with natural minimal cut; can use all 4 quadrants.
Currently plays down a grade due to lack of command. Has control but doesn't pinpoint spots. With reps could improve command and play to highest grade.
true 12-6 shape; plus-plus spin; showed depth with good bite; loves to bury pitch; can throw for strike; command average.
Very intriguing arm that can hit triple digits. Started in High-A and already called up to Double AA. Heard the issue is throwing back to back days but this year he has been good. He has a top of the scale FB that will improve as he learns to spot it both arm-side and glove side. His CB is plus pitch and plays well off of his FB. His FB/CB works very well out of the backend of the bullpen.
