Stilllings arm strength has been well known about since his high school days, when he also profiled as a talented catching prospect. He regularly sits in the low-90s and has touched 96 on occasion. He is a true power pitcher that attacks hitters and can be effectively wild. That wildness leads to high walk totals, although given how hard he is to hit, he has been able to minimize damage when issuing free passes throughout his college career. His secondary pitches need to be refined, although his slider is a plus-pitch when he is throwing it as well as he can. His max-effort, power approach, control issues and limited repertoire may make him a better option for short relief, but he will be given every opportunity to stick as a starter given his easy arm strength.
