Notes

Comments

1/29/22

Added strength onto a 6-foot-1, 210-pound frame since our previous look, clear physicality in the lower half. Athletic drop-and-drive downhill pattern, repeats and finishes in a controlled posture. Shorter, compact arm action that works from a clean high ¾ slot, above-average arm speed, loose shoulder. Fastball sat 91-93 mph, averaged 2,398 rpm, mostly straight action and some feel for the zone; ball jumps out of the hand with late finish through the zone. Breaking ball is the separator. Played at 75-78 mph with sharp late break, downer action, averaged nearly 2,800 rpm and showed feel to locate it around the zone/for strikes. Also mixed in a changeup at 84-87 mph that played from a slightly lower release slot and averaged 16.4 inches of horizontal movement. Emerged as one of the event’s biggest winners as an area draft follow moving into the spring.
