Notes

Comments

10/16/21

6-foot-1, 170-pound lean lanky frame. Solid, capable on the mound, showed consistent arm speed, also used an over-the-top arm angle and a longer loose arm action. Feel up-tempo type pitcher who uses high effort. Showed athletic balance point and in line uphill shoulders. Lands square with a clean balanced finish. Produced a fastball that came in at 78-81 mph; showed control around the zone decent with sharp movement. (Max spin 2116; Avg 1935). Has a sharp 12/6 curveball (63-64) that showed decent down in the zone command and gradual action. (Max spin 2212; Avg 2144). Throws a heavy changeup (67-70) that has glove side control and late action.

9/18/21

6-foot-1, 170-pound mature physical build. Raw in the box, the right-handed hitter recorded an exit velocity of 82 mph. Started in a tall balanced stance with a controlled load, then used a short stride. Found multiple barrels through his round. Solid while in the infield, made throws at velocities up to 77 mph; showed choppy feet, raw hands, and a natural exchange. Fields the ball out front, movements laterally were developing. Had a high ¾ slot and a loose arm action. During the event, clocked a 60 time of 8.32. Projectable on the mound, showed above average arm speed, he had a clean arm action with a high ¾ arm angle. Tall-and-fall type pitcher who uses some effort. Tall balance point with even shoulders. Lands square with an athletic finish. Threw his fastball 80-81 mph; has running action and arm side control. His 11/5 curveball (65-66) showed in the zone control and gradual action. Had fading action and control around the zone on his changeup (65-66).
