6-foot-1, 210-pound, larger, strong athletic frame. Strength throughout, durable pitchers frame. A two-way player, showed well on both sides of the field. At the plate, wider setup, hands are loose with pre-pitch movement to them. For timing uses a controlled toe tap, gaining ground, backside drive. The swing is level to up, creates lift and loft, with backspin. The exit velocity was clocked at 91 mph. Defensively, shows plus actions at 1st base, feet and hands work together, hands are super soft. The double play starts are smooth and accurate. The arm action is short, working quick and clean right from the catch. The arm was clocked at 80 mph, with carry.  Off the mound, working from the set position, has tempo to delivery, strong on the back half, collapse and opens lead front foot on foot strike. The arm action is clean, working out of a natural 3/4 slot. The fastball touched 79 mph, with arm side run to it. The breaking ball was bigger, clocked in the mid 60's. Showed feel for the changeup. Projects for me more as a 1st baseman, a plus defender with feel for the bat.

Exit Velocity: 91 mph

Arm Velocity: 80 mph
