Strong frame and long legs with a high waist.  Stands 6-foot-4, 170 pounds.  Frame will continue to handle strength with more maturation.  Fastball up to 84, sitting 81-82 with ease, playing catch hand pounding the zone throughout the bullpen.  Breaking ball is hard and sharp at times with 11/5 tilt at 70-72.  Good feel for landing the spin pitch.  Change-up is straight with deception out of the hand at 74-76.  Simple delivery with a stable head over the rubber.  Average leg kick, remaining level and in-line.   Lands on-line with a slightly closed toe.  Average back side leads to some extension, finishing through his target.  Clean arm swing with a high-3/4 release and some hand speed.  Arm should continue to grow with this setup.

Wide shoulders with strength in the lower half at 6-foot-4, 170 pounds.  Frame will continue to handle strength as it matures.  Fastball worked easy, sitting 80-82 from a quick arm and high-3/4 slot.  Repeats the delivery, working with direct lines, landing square, while staying level.  Advanced breaking ball has late 11/5 action.  Above average feel and command, ranging 64-69, flashing an ability to add and subtract on the pitch during the pen.  Change-up is third pitch at 70-71, occasionally cutting out of the hand.  Easy to see fastball – curveball combination continuing to get better in the coming months.

Advanced feel for the breaking ball from the 6-foot-4, 160 pound righty.  Fastball ranged 81-84, working down in the zone with angle out of the hand.  Curveball ranged 66-70, showing feel and command for the 12/6 breaker.  Late action at times, showed an ability to bury the pitch on-line to get chase.  Showed a feel for throwing it in the zone as well.  Good shape as the hand speed was maintained.  Straight change-up ranged 70-72.  A distant third pitch, it is use-able, around the zone, with some deception out of the hand.  Easy arm action, repeats a low maintenance delivery and works to pitch, staying ahead and moving fastball around the zone.  Long, loose arm swing works to an over-the-top slot with average quickness.  Stays tall and level through balance.  Works on-line throughout the delivery.

Slender, lanky frame in the 6-foot-4, 160 pounder.  Fastball worked up to 84, sitting 81-83 with a feel for the strike zone.  High-¾ slot with a long arm swing, working behind the body line a little.  Good balance and average effort showing some feel for his rhythm.  Shoulders close down the line a little, staying level, finishing on line with a toe position that is slightly closed.  Two different breaking balls with the curveball showing better tilt than the slider.  Curveball sat 67-69 with gradual downer action, in the zone, with near fastball hand speed.  Change up ranged 70-73, slowing the arm some, throwing strikes with it.

In the box, left-handed hitter works from a balanced stance, loading back, using a short stride.  Works level, wanting extension, showing good head discipline and looseness with the swing.  Pull tendency.  Barrel position floats at times into the launch position, limiting some of the barrel ability.  Athletic behind the plate throwing 2.21-2.39 with a velo of 73 from the crouch.  Short arm swing to an over-the-top slot.  Fluid feet, clean exchanges, and accurate with average carry.  Received well, with average hands, presenting an easy target to throw to.  Blocks moving forward at times, but works for his pitchers.  Ran a 7.54 sixty.
