Large frame with broad shoulders, standing 6-foot-9, 225 pounds.  Long arm swing hides the ball, working in-line with the body.  Slight coil at balance.  Creates extension.  Has a feel for the strike zone from a high-3/4 slot.  Coming out of basketball, this was an early bullpen.  Fastball sat 80-81, running out of the hand.  Commanded the zone with the breaking ball at 66-71.  Late 10/4 tilt creating depth with similar hand speed to the fastball.  Change-up sat 69-70, around the zone, with deception out of the release.

Attention grabbing 6-foot-9, 235 pound righty.  Strength is present in the frame.  Coordination is there as well, but will continue to improve as the body gets used to its frame.  Fastball ranged 79-82, playing harder out of the hand with extension.  Around the zone, occasionally cutting the pitch to the glove side of the plate.  Slows the arm on the curveball, hurting the shape and feel for the pitch that ranged 61-62.  Slider is ahead at 70-71, while still erratic.  Window on both breaking balls did not match fastball all the time.  The change-up works similar to the fastball with hand speed and release.  Some arm side run on the pitch that touched 72.  Projection is alive as the arm may quicken.  Average arm speed now from a high-3/4 slot and long arm swing.  Tall at balance and controlled pacing throughout the delivery, the shoulders work to stay level.  Closes his front side at balance, landing slightly closed as well.  Tempo throughout the delivery is very cautious.
