On the mound, the right handed pitcher displayed a repeatable delivery. Impressive outing during live game actions. Delivery has tempo and comes right at you. Plus FB command down in the zone which peaked at 82 MPH. CB has sharp late break and ranged from 72-74 MPH. The 2021 graduate is a must follow.
