6-foot-1, 160-pound, long, lengthy, wiry strong athlete. The shoulders are sloped, has tons of room to fill out, add weight and mass on. A right-handed pitcher with a super clean, quick, shorter arm path, baseball jumps out of his hand. The delivery is controlled, has an easy smooth leg raise, in gather position, has a slight bend, loses some leverage with bending with upper body, needs to keep back straight, easy fix with reps and practice. The direction of lead leg is slightly across body, shows to have an athletic finish. The fastball was clocked at 83-86 mph, with heavy arm side run, needs to start middle, tons of movement, fastball is basically a very heavy sinker. Showed the ability to drill the outer half with 4-seamer needs to be more consistent with it. The breaking ball has a chance to be a legit out pitch, thrown hard, true slurve break to it, clocked at 71 -75 mph, some slider tilt at times. The changeup is still a work in progress, clocked at 76-77 mph, proper down action, needs to become more comfortable with it, makings of a quality pitch. Repeated the delivery out of the stretch with consistent times of 1.35. Still extremely new to pitching, has a ton left in the arm, with added weight, proper long throwing and mound work, velocity will spike and should be an upper 80’s guy at some point. Big time follow.


6-foot, 160-pound, wiry athletic frame. The neck is long, shoulders are sloped, arms ands limbs have length to them, has plenty of room to fill out and put added weight on.  A right-handed pitcher, works out of the stretch the entire time, delivery is repeatable and very fluid, all parts work together. The leg raise is quick, smooth has no wasted movement. The stride length could be longer, and lead leg inline a tick more. The arm action has a bottom to top path, it’s super, clean, free and easy, works out of a natural ¾ to low ¾ slot. Showed to get good extension with the upper body.  The fastball was clocked at 80-83 mph, with tons of action to the arm side, worked the fastball in the bottom part of the zone for his entire bullpen session. The  curveball was clocked at 66-70 mph had an 11/5 break to it. The slider was clocked at 72-74 mph, with late darting breaking to it. The slider is more of a putaway pitch. Look for the velocity and game to erupt this spring, love the arm action and how the body/frame work in sync. Big time follow for me.
