Lots of his athleticism stems from his size and his velocity sits in the 90-95 mph range and ha he matures, that is expected to rise. His curve ball is listed in the average range and has good arm speed for a changeup that has some sink and fade action. His control appears to be good maintaining his velocity well, throwing his fastball with some life. He’ll flash a solid average curveball and does show feel for a changeup with decent arm speed and some sink and fade.
