Smooth, simple rhythm working into balanced hitting position. Direct path and loose stroke, present power to pull side with strength at contact that produced an exit velocity 93 mph. Defender that worked through ball well with receptive hands and smooth footwork, working into long whippy high-3/4 release posting a positional velocity of 84 mph. Right-handed pitcher working with long, clean arm action into high-3/4 release with quick arm speed and regular effort. Athletic delivery with in-line direction, smooth rhythm, lands square and finishing tall. Ran fastball up to 86 mph with heaviness and life to the arm side, pitching 82-85 mph.  Breaking ball showed 11/5 shape with depth, and sharp, late break at 70-74 mph.
