Definite follow on the mound. Southpaw with an clean delivery and loose arm. Three-pitch mix led by the fastball/breaking ball combo. Fastball is heavy/works downhill at 79-82 mph with all the signs of more velo down the road. Breaking ball was inconsistent but was a quality offering stuff wise at 66-69 mph.  Pitch has late downward bite that has more than enough action to miss barrels when in the zone. Changeup was in the zone consistently with a bit slower arm speed than on fastball. Secondary offerings have room to grow (just like most prospects his age) but arm really works while already offering above average velo for class.
