Physical Description: Sturdy, filled out pitcher’s frame. Thick lower body. Minimal remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a high three-quarters arm slot from the third base side of the rubber. Delivery and arm action work. Slightly long arm action behind. Doesn’t consistently finish delivery. Quick arm.

Fastball: 91-93 mph. Tops out at 94 mph. Pitch lacks movement and has average life. Fringe-average control, below-average command. Potential average offering.

Slider: 83-85 mph. Short, vertical break. Fringe-average potential.

Changeup: 85-86 mph. Throws with deceptive arm speed. Shows late drop. Looks like a splitter at times when it falls off the table late. Average potential.

Career Notes: Was a two-way player at Florida who moved to pitching full-time as a professional. Moved to the bullpen full-time early in his first full season. Missed significant portions of both the 2014 and 2015 seasons for off-field reasons.

Summation: Projects as an organizational arm. Average three-pitch mix. Throws strikes, usually around the zone. Lacks above-average offering to project as a major league arm, but if any pitch takes a step forward, could get a cup of coffee. Should develop into a solid organizational bullpen arm who bounces around the high minors.
