Average 6 feet, 185-pound frame.  Still maturing with a chance to add continued strength.  On the mound he uses a simple delivery, with a slower tempo, throwing across his body creating some deception with a long arm action, throwing from a high ¾ slot. Works in the zone with his fastball sitting at 73-77 mph. Shows a straight change-up at 69 mph. Slows arm on curveball with 1/7 tilt and gradual break at 61-62 mph. Stays around the zone with all 3 pitches.  Hits from the left side using a tall, slightly open setup. Uses a small leg kick in his load getting his lower half through the ball. Barrel works level through the zone, getting extension out front. Works mostly middle to his pull side with his exit velocity recorded at 81 mph and should improve with added looseness to his swing. On the infield he shows average hands with fluid feet and clean exchanges. Short arm action throwing from a high ¾ slot, with some accuracy to his throws and positional velocity recorded at 65 mph. Also, recorded a 7.48 in the 60-yard dash.
