at Fresno Easter Classic - Texas Tech commit; Was a big draw on Day Two of the Fresno Easter Classic. The junior righty burst on the scene last summer at the Underclass Area Code Games where he flashed a lively fastball and two-plane slider and has improved his command of both pitches since then. His fastball showed some late life while working at 87-89 most of the night. It was straight at times but he showed the ability to elevate and bury it when needed while also working to both sides of the plate. Didn’t lose any velocity out of the stretch early before settling in at 85-87 from there late. Slider showed two breaks to it. Initially it was slurvy with late biting action, before it took on more of a curveball break with depth working at 75-77 and touching 78 with the pitch, he took something off from the stretch causing the break to be a tad loopier at 71-73 which also kept hitters off balance.

8/10-8/12/18 at Area Code Games: Large frame with a higher waist and pronounced strength in lower half; projectable build with more space for strength in lean and wiry upper half. Hands start at head and stay there through simple turn delivery; arm gets out of glove early and down to lower back before slight tuck and sits into back hip while driving down the hill. Very quick and loose arm gets to 3/4-release and jumps on hitters with longer extension using strong legs. FB 86-88, T89 MPH showing angle down through the zone with ability to dial the velocity up/down as needed. CHG 79-82 MPH was straight and heavy with limited feel and limited depth; actions showed pitch could be average offering as he continues to gain feel for pitch. CB 69-73 MPH showing tight spin with late 12/6 drop; pitch projects to be a true 2-level pitch with flashes where the tight spin really snaps through the zone. 2.2 innings pitched giving up 6 hits while walking 3 and giving up 4 runs and striking out 1; first outing were weak contact hits, but also consistent battling from behind while pitching around hitters. 2nd outing had balls squared up more consistently on him as fastball was up in the zone after pitching two days earlier.
