5-foot-11, 153-pound high upside left-handed pitcher, lean wiry frame, loose levers. Delivery repeats with poise on the mound. Easy effort, in command, controls the pace. Arm action is clean and easy, loose action, high ¾ slot. Fastball played 82-84 mph, touched 85 mph, played with slight arm side run, pounds the zone, looks like more in the tank. Curveball played at 69 mph, 1/7 shape, used sparingly.

 

3/16/19

5-foot-11, 153-pound left-handed hitting pitcher. Smaller athletic frame, high balance point, long arm swing, ball comes out clean in front with minimal effort, upright on release, almost runs down mound. Fastball was 80-82 mph, quicker arm speed, with varying action to plate. Curveball has sharp 1/7 break with solid depth; commands pitch well for strikes. Deceptive changeup thrown from same slot as fastball with late run, fade and sink.
