Chris is a slender left-handed pitcher. His fastball at the time he was drafted was a tick below average (he threw in the low 90s in the instructional league) with good arm side tail. His out pitch is clearly his curve ball and the Indians are very excited about his curve. He projects to have an average changeup with good sink and fade. Initially, the idea would be for him to start 2008 in the rotation at Lake County. There is a good deal of sentiment in the Indians organization that Chris is going to be a really good pitcher and he rates watching next year.
