6-foot-2, 170-pound left-handed pitcher, long and lanky frame with loose actions, projectable and high-waisted. Started for Rhino against the Illinois Indians going 4.1IP. Works at a quick pace, coils at balance, works in-line, some athleticism throughout delivery. Full arm action with firmness at release, ¾ slot. Fastball ranged 81-83 mph, topped 84 mph with run to his arm side. Went to his 1/7 shaped breaker often, depthy action at times with swing-and-miss break, 71-72 mph.

Uncommitted junior. 6-foot-2, 170-pound left-handed pitcher, lanky, high-waisted frame, athletic. Pitched three innings in relief for St. Rita allowing only one run on three hits, one walk and one strikeout (26 of 44 pitches were strikes). Set a quick pace when he entered the game, effectively silenced a good St. Laurence team scattering his four hits not letting a rally get started. Allowed one extra base hit which scored the only run. Tempoed delivery, sturdy, coiled balance, works in-line to home, toe squared, athletic finish. Long, full arm action, some firmness, ¾ slot, regular effort. Fastball had run to his arm side, worked all thirds of the plate, rather easy out the hand, 79-81 mph. Slider, flashed tight spin, short breaker, early release at times, 70-71 mph. Feel for his pickoff move, ended the fifth with an effective pick to first.
