Smooth lower half and backside drive. Inconsistent at getting hips through and over front side.  Fastball was inconsistent in zone but showed life up to 93 mph.

Showed ability to throw a better late action breaking ball in game with swing and miss potential. Changeup had run to the pitch at 75 mph. Both off-speed pitches he does slow down slightly. In his outing Showed flashes on dominance and very tough on hitters to pick up. Nice tempo in games, but at times almost worked too fast which got him out of sync. Battled and was able to pitch himself out of jams making big pitches. High ceiling arm who has potential to be a special arm with his size, slot, and arm speed.
