Physical Description: Medium-sized right-hander. Still has room to grow physically even in his late 20s.

Mechanics: Low 3/4 arm slot. Slinging motion to his delivery, yet slow and deliberate. Does not utilizes his lower half much to generate torque. Above-average control, generates a lot of ground balls.

Fastball: Relies heavily on a 90-91 mph two-seam sinker, which he locates really well. Excellent downward action with some tail.

Curveball: Best secondary offering is a 75-78 mph power curveball with an excellent spin rate. Loopy movement down towards the glove side. Does not miss a lot of bats.

Changeup: Mixes in an occasional 82-83 mph changeup. Attempts to paint the corners or fiddle just outside the zone, leaving minimal margin for error.

Career Notes: Profiles as an up-and--down emergency depth starter. Will be tough to provide significant value in that role once he is out of options following the 2019 season. Could be effective in short stints given his control and propensity to induce groundballs.
