Scouting Report

06/23/18- Uncommitted. Currently stands at 6-foot-2, 180 pounds with lean frame and strong lower half. Defensively, moves well with good hands and topped at 76 mph, but clearly has more there. Offensively, there is strength in the lower half. He uses a leg kick load and looks to aggressively pull the baseball. There is some stiffness and rotation in the upper half that cuts him off at time, but when he works to extension there is gap to gap power and an exit velocity of 88 mph. On the mound, he has a compact, simple and repeatable delivery. Shows solid leg drive and has a compact arm action working to a high 3/4 release. The fastball had some heavy tilt and worked from 84-86 mph. The curveball had some depth at 71-74 mph and showed a changeup at 75-76 mph. Overall, an intriguing two-way talent with present strength and tools.
