The Write-Up (10.5.15)
Notes from the Field (3.18.16)

Physical Description: Athletic, medium build; not much physical projection. 

Mechanics: Works from first base side of rubber; hands set at shoulder height; no wind-up as he pivots into delivery; three-quarters arm slot.

Fastball: 94-96 mph. Tops out in the high-90s. Pitch has late life. Pitch has shown cut and two-seam movement on separate occasions. Velocity has ticked up as hes matured, was 91-94 mph during Spring Training 2015. Command and control need improvement. Combination of velocity and movement make it a potential plus-plus offering.

Slider: 87-90 mph. At its best shows hard, sharp tilt. Does a good job snapping off with tight rotation. Has the ability to throw the pitch for strikes and elicit swing-and-misses both within and out of the zone. Potential plus offering.

Summation: Very intriguing bullpen arm with the potential for two above-average-to-better pitches with the ability to throw strikes with both offerings and elicit swing-and-misses. Stuff could profile in a late-inning role, but will need to improve consistency and command and control.
