10-1-2018:Impressive outing to close out the game for the Redbirds. Pitched at 88-91 mph with his fastball, touching 93 on an 0-2 count. Working from the first base side of the rubber, commanded his FB to both sides of the plate. Very good angle from a three-quarter slot and a closed landing. FB played up. Mixed in an above average slider at 78-80 mph. Good depth with angle. Repeated the pitch and expanded when needed. Induced many bad swings. Had the look of a senior prospect who could pitch himself into the top 10 rounds as a money saver this spring. (Seifert)
