Scouting Report

Athletic frame with projection ahead at 6-foot-2, 175-pounds. Pounded the bottom of the zone with his fastball at 80-82 mph. Fastball has arm side run averaging 12.4 inches or horizontal movement. Above average changeup tunneling with his fastball at 75-77 mph. Breaking ball has sweeping action with a max spin of 2544rpms. Works slightly across his body creating some deception with a quick arm using a ¾ slot. Quick arm and athleticism suggest more to come in the coming years.
