6-foot-2, 185-pound, longer, durable athletic frame. Showing plenty of room for added weight gains. A right-handed pitcher, who also worked out at 3rd base. Off the mound, pounds the zone with a 3-pitch mix. The delivery is controlled having rhythm, hands over head, easy athletic kick, separation is on time, direction is inline, landing with a slightly closed off front foot. The stride could length a tick, to shorten gap to plate, showing some forward lean. The arm action is clean on the backside, working from a 3/4 to higher 3/4 slot. The fastball reached 77 mph, bore action to it, rides in, also showed ability to pound it to glove side. The breaking ball reached 60 mph, bigger break, will need to add more fastball hand speed to it. Showed feel for a true changeup. At the plate, even feet, high hand set, is tall throughout, small pick up and put down. The swing is level through the zone, middle of the field approach, look for him to hit with power at some point. Showing plus pop for his age, had an exit velocity of 86 mph. Defensively, moves well to both sides at third base. The hands are soft, gets low and out front. The arm action is shorter on the backside, clocked at 73 mph. Look for him to be able to stick on the left side. Solid looking two-way player.
