7/2 vs Yard Dogs – Confident, athletic pitcher who is not afraid to throw any pitch in any count. Fastball sat 91-93 and touched 94. Was able to use the pitch to get ground balls and also was able to get some swings and misses up in the zone. Wasn’t commanding curveball early on, but it got sharper and better as the game went on and missed mostly in dirt. Showed several plus curveballs and got four WHIFFs including three of his strikeouts. Changeup is very firm at 87-89 MPH. Gets some armside run to the pitch, but not much if any drop, but there’s enough wrinkle to get batters off balance at times. Threw a couple average ones but it’s a below average offering overall. Throws an 87 MPH slider, but it’s more of a get me over slider than a swing and miss pitch. Doesn’t have much feel to keep it low and away but can throw strikes with it.

Needs more separation of velocity on his change and his slider needs better location and movement. Basically dominated with two pitches (fastball, curveball) against a poor hitting Double-A team. Collected 8 swings and misses out of 88 pitches.
