On the mound, he has an uptempo delivery with some effort to go along with a long arm action and high ¾ release point. He features a fastball and breaking ball mix. His fastball has life and topped at 87mph. His slider, while having inconsistent command, showed sharp bite and the potential to be a plus pitch.
