Physical Description: Average size, filled-out frame. Limited projection with his body. Bigger than listed.  

Mechanics: Over the top delivery, quick to the plate. Compact, repeatable delivery. Works quick, good rhythm.  

Fastball: 91-93 mph. Tops out at 95 mph. Solid-average potential. Heavy with late life. Two-seam has late arm-side run at 87-89 mph. Throws strikes, fringe-average command.  

Changeup: 83-85 mph. Average potential. Solid arm speed, shows late dive. Potential to miss bats.  

Curveball: 78-81 mph. Fringe-average potential. Short, 11-to-5 break. Can be on the slurvy side. Lacks feel for the pitch.  

Career Notes: Although he has worked out of the bullpen for most of his career, typically works longer outings, whether planned or due to consistent positive results.  

Summation: Future reliever profile. Throws strikes, workable fastball/changeup combination. Needs to improve curveball, but it has flashed potential. Lacks much of a ceiling, but safe bet to reach the high minors at least.
