2014 Top 40 Season in Review

Claimed off waivers by Philadelphia (July 2015)

Physcial Description:
Mature frame. Maxed out physically. Strong lower half.  

Mechanics: Over-the-top delivery. Quick arm with short arm action. Pitches exclusively from the stretch. Quick to the plate.  

Fastball: 91-95 mph. Late life when he finishes delivery. Has some arm-side run. Shows plus when hes loose and working in the upper half of that range. Below-average command and control.  

Breaking Ball: Alternated between a curveball and slider depending on the outing. Early in the season, threw more of a curveball at 78-80 mph. That pitch showed two-plane break and tight rotation when he got on top of the ball. When he comes more from the side, tends to get loose and slurvey. Average grade pitch. Later in the season, he started throwing a slider at 84-86 mph that showed hard bite and late depth in the zone. That pitch is a potential plus offering and weapon that could miss bats at the highest level.  

Changeup: 82-84 mph. Serviceable third-pitch. Work in progress. Fringe-average potential.  

Summation: Profiles as a middle reliever. Has a chance to stick at end of a big league bullpen. Three-pitch mix that flashes plus fastball, plus breaking ball and developing changeup. Combination of velocity and secondary offerings will miss bats at the big league level.
