Scouting Report: Throws from a high 3/4 arm slot that tends to drop closer to full three-quarters when he gets tired. Arm action is long behind his body. Big body without much projection left. Sits 90-94 mph with his fastball, touching 95 mph. The pitch is heavy and has late life. Below-average command. Fastball can show cutter movement at 88-90 mph later in games. Improving curveball comes in at 71-75 mph with 12-6 break.  Inconsistent pitch shows flashes of tight rotation and depth. Drops arm slot on pitch and comes around ball.  Below-average 82-84 mph changeup lacks feel and deception. Middle reliever celing.
