Physical Description: Slightly undersized right-hander with limited physical projection remaining.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot with effort in his delivery. Jerky mechanics, including slight drop-and-drive and short arm action. Average arm speed with front side deception.

Fastball: 87-89 mph. Tops out at 91 mph. Pitch shows sink and run at times and cut in lower velocity range. Average potential.

Curveball: 74-78 mph. Will also take something off and throw in low 70s. 11-to-5 movement and length. Slow and loopy side and tends to roll to the plate. Fringe-average potential.

Changeup: 81-82 mph. Pitch shows drop. Fringe-average potential.

Slider: 82-83 mph. Short, vertical break.

Summation: Profiles best in a bullpen role, but lack of velocity or above-average secondary pitch limits upside. Already old for the level repeating Lowell in 2016. Upside of an organizational bullpen arm.
