In the outfield slow controlled pace on approach, average hands to catch, and an average arm circle that displayed some arm speed getting through from a low three-quarter arm slot at 77 mph. 60 time was 7.75. Quick paced delivery, pitches with intent, and attacks hitters throughout. Small rocker step, drives down the mound, and lands on line. Short quick arm from a low three-quarter arm slot.
