Scouting Report

08/02/17- 6-foot-1, 185 pound right-handed pitcher has a strong stocky frame with extremely big and strong hands. The strong right hander shown the ability to get a lot of swing and miss on a heavy fastball when in the zone at 84-86 mph. The fastball has late life and as he learns to continue to get quality extension and trust his stuff, the velocity will continue to jump and the command will continue to improve. Also, showed a feel for a 73-74 mph curveball and a 75-76 mph fading changeup. The quarterback for his football team is strong and athletic and will continue to make big strides as he logs innings on the mound.

06/28/17- Strong, durable frame right handed pitcher with long arms and big, strong hands showed composure on the mound with a clean delivery, lands consistently in line with quality tempo. Showcased command of the strike zone with above average changeup at 75-76 mph that has the potential to be a plus pitch as well as a slider at 66 mph. Fastball topped out at 86 with heavy life working mostly in the 84-86 mph, jump in velocity is inevitable. The elbow worked below the shoulder at times, which could cause some command issues, but has a chance to make some big velocity and overall jumps as he continues to improve
