Physical Description: Ideal pitcher's build with room for growth. Good athlete. On the thin side at present. Will be able to add strength without sacrificing athleticism.  

Mechanics: Uses a drop-and-drive delivery with a stab behind. Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Loose arm. Controlled, repeatable delivery. Has some trouble pitching downhill. Good timing in delivery, arm comes through in sync with body. Rhythmic delivery. Can lose his arm slot and release point.  

Fastball: 90-93 mph. Tops out at 96 mph. Some late life, but pitch is on the straight side and hitters seem to get a good look at it. Solid-average potential. Average command, but plus control. Throws strikes, rarely walks hitters.  

Slider: 78-82 mph. Shows tilt and tight break. Two-plane, 10-to-4 movement. Strong feel for pitch. Confident throwing it in any count. Can miss bats. Solid-average potential.  

Changeup: 80-83 mph. Throws with similar arm speed to his fastball. Shows fade on some occasions, sink on others. Effective when he finishes the pitch and buries it down in the zone. Average potential.  

Curveball: 72-76 mph. 11-5 break. Flashes tight rotation and depth, but inconsistent. On the loose side generally. Doesnít always finish the pitch and snap it off. Can throw to steal strikes, but more of a pitch to keep hitters honest and show them something different. Fringe-average potential.  

Career Notes: Originally agreed to a $1.1-million signing bonus with the Red Sox, but eventually signed for $915,000 when his physical revealed that he had been born without a right pectoral muscle.  

Summation: Innings-eating number four/five starter potential. Wonít be flashy, but will throw strikes and utilize four-pitch mix to get outs. If command doesnít improve, and secondary pitches donít develop, profiles as a long reliever. Really understands how to pitch. Strong makeup. Doesnít give away at-bats, grinds and generates weak contact.
