Projectable showed his live arm in the infield with position velocities up to 87 mph; has a natural exchange, developing soft hands, and developing feet. Above average when throwing from the outfield, he showed off his strong arm with throws at velocities of 93 mph;has developing soft hands, developing athletic feet, and a natural exchange. Fields the ball out front, movements laterally were athletic. Using a loose, very quick arm action, showed consistent accuracy to the bag from a ¾ slot. Above average projectable on the mound, used a ¾ arm angle with a consistent quick arm action while showing above average arm speed. Up-tempo type pitcher and shows some effort. Has in line shoulder and consistent balance point. Lands closed with a falling off finish. Cutter (75-76 mph). Produced a fastball that came in at 84-85 mph; showed command arm side around the zone and running sinking action. (Max spin 2231; Avg 2124).
