6-foot-3, 175-pound, RHP uses a smooth and rhythmic motion to create timing and momentum throughout his delivery, good size and makes athletic movements, hands stay together and just below his chest until separation, fluid leg left gets his front side closed and helps lead with his front hip toward the plate, reaches back and gets some good shoulder tilt at the top,  long and loose arm action comes through an over-the-top slot, finishes mostly balanced with a slight fade toward 1B.  Fastball was mostly straight but showed some late run a couple of times, good curveball with 11/5 shape combined with a fading changeup to make for some solid offspeed, also threw a knuckleball with some serious movement.
