Committed to CVCC.  Thin frame at 6 foot, 150-pounds.  Tall, balanced setup from the right side.  Barrel starts flat above his back shoulder working to a more upright position during his load with a short stride.  Short barrel path to the ball, using the whole field.  Some stiffness in his hands at times causes him to not get extension through the zone.  Hit some line drives during batting practice with his exit velocity recorded at 82 mph.  Barreled a ball to left field for a base hit during game action.  Feet work around the ball on the infield with average hands.  Funnels to the belt after catch with clean exchanges and feel for different arm slots.  Accurate arm that topped at 84 mph to first base.  Recorded a 7.26 in the 60.

On the bump, works with some rhythm and a kick to the low chest.  Medium arm swing with a slight wrist hook getting to an over-the-top slot.  Quick arm.  Some effort.  Short strider works level, landing slightly across his line with a square foot-strike.  Fastball ranged 83-85.   Good angle to the fastball when down, allowing it to play harder.  Good feel for the sharp, late, downer breaking ball, sitting 69-71.  Run out of the hand with the change-up at 75.

6 foot, 150-pound lanky frame.  Balanced setup from the right side of the plate. Little movement during the load with a short stride.  Barrel works level through the zone working mostly middle to his pull side.  Some length in the swing at times. Flashes feel for his barrel with his exit velocity recorded at 77 mph.  Quick arm with some carry across the diamond topping at 84 mph.  Catches the ball deep at times with clean exchanges using different slots.  Recorded a 7.21 in the 60. 
Simple delivery with a small rocker and kick to the low chest.  Slow tempo, building to an average to above hand speed at release.  Fastball bumped 85, sitting 83-84.  Life with sink and run present, hard at times.  Lacked feel to any one spot, but the movement played a part in the command still developing.  Long, loose arm swing.  Slight head tilt as the hand works through a high-3/4 slot.  Lands slightly across his line with a closed toe at foot-strike.  Breaking ball rolled at times, but flashed tight, late depth at 72-73 as the bullpen proceeded.  11/5 tilt and around the zone.  Window is slightly lower than that of fastball.  Good athlete that could see another jump as strength is added to the frame.
