6-foot, 190-pound primary pitcher sat 81-83 from a 3/4 arm slot with a hook in the back and a side-rocker step to begin. Fastball showed some arm-side run from his two-seam fastball and changeup sat 73-76. Slider sat 66-70 with a tight, short break while command was an issue on this date. The right-handed hitter starts from a square stance and initiates his swing with a leg-lift stride.
