Some info from FutureSox:

Royse, the Friday starter for the Cardinals, has a 90-93 fastball with good sink. His change up is developing and he has good control. However, he has had issues maintaining his velocity.

And CSN:

Though he spent the early part of his collegiate career in the bullpen, he’d like to keep starting if he could.”I’ve done both but I enjoy starting more,” he said. “They [th Sox] are in control now, so whatever they want me to do I will.”

Royse’s self-evaluation is as follows – an upper 80s, low-90s fastball that moves on both sides of the plate and has life on both sides of the plate.

“It has a little cut and run,” he said before adding that he has a “usable” slider that’s still developing and a solid changeup with which he is getting more comfortable.
