6-foot-2, 181-pound, longer, lean athletic frame. Showing plenty of room for added weight gains. A two-way player, at the plate, feet are even at shoulder width, hands are loose and relaxed, bat starting in a tilted position. The swing is level through the zone, spraying one line drive after another. The approach is from gap to gap, had an exit velocity of 85 mph, and ran a 8.25 sixty-yard dash. Defensively, shows very good actions, feet and hands work together. The arm was clocked at 75 mph, easy carry across the diamond, look for him to be able to stick on the left-side of the infield. Off the mound, has a quick tempo delivery, landing slightly across his body, shows the ability to get baseball to glove side, with crossfire. The arm works out of a 3/4 slot, shorter on the back swing, has room for added velocity. The fastball was clocked at 76 mph, locating it to both sides. Threw two different breaking balls, slider had good hand speed, clocked at 70 mph, chance to be an out pitch. The breaking ball was in the mid 60's more of a get me over strike pitch. Like how the arm works, has more in the tank.

Exit Velocity: 85 mph

Arm Velocity:  75 mph

Sixty-Yard Dash: 8.25

6-foot-2, 180-pound right-handed pitcher. He continues to grow and improve each and every time we see him throw. The arm works clean, above 3/4 and the frame projects to add weight to it. I can see him being a serious guys with the addition of 20-25 pounds, which as a 2023 graduate is certainly doable with work. The fastball sat 73-74 mph, downhill action at times. The spin pitch is 58-59 mph, big in shape as it needs additional fastball hand speed added to it. The changeup has solid form, sitting 66-67 mph. The delivery is online with the feet ( stands on top of the rubber- needs to be balanced in front) and the slot is above 3/4. The tracking and arm swing are all appropriate and clean. Good follow at a young age

On the mound, the feet have a tick of crossfire to them and the slot is above 3/4, The arm works clean and he repeats his delivery to the plate. The athleticsm is solid and the frame projects.

6-foot,165-pound right-handed pitcher. The frame projects as he is long and lanky. The arm works freely, getting physically stronger is imperative as he has the base skill set to be a pitcher. The feet have a minimal amount of crossfire and the slot is above 3/4 in height. The lift is repeated, easy in tempo. The glove has a small amount of pull to it, and sink on the back leg as he makes his way into foot strike. The fastball sat 67-68 mph, minimal arm side action. The spin pitch is very big in shape, sitting 55-56 mph. The changeup is 61-63 mph, needs a spin fix.
