Scouting Report

4.16.16 - Vanderbilt recruit, currently ranked No. 3 in Illinois’ 2016 class, No. 75 in PBR Draft 100. Athletic 6-foot-5, 205-pound frame, prototypical pitcher’s build, long limbs, proportional strength, plenty of room for continued physical development. Pitched well in his 5.1 innings: struck out eight, walked three, hit one batter, allowed three singles, three runs, none of which were earned. Especially impressive in the first inning, sitting 90-92 (some guns had 93) with arm-side sink, to go along with his trademark 78-82 mph slider that was particularly sharp in the beginning innings. The pitch had late two-plane break and he showed the ability to throw it consistently for strikes and bury it down when he wanted.
