6 feet 5, 200-pound projectable build.  Lanky and beginning to add some strength to the frame.  Offensively he works from the right side with an athletic, tall, balanced setup. Gets his weight back smooth in his load with a short stride and getting his lower half through the ball. His barrel works level through the zone getting good extension out front showing a gap to gap line drive approach. Stays fluid throughout his swing with good balance and ball off the bat recorded at 89 mph. Showed the ability to keep his bat in the zone and hit line drives. On the infield he shows average hands with fluid feet and clean exchanges with a long arm action leading to an over the top slot. Shows an average arm with some accuracy that should play better with more looseness and playing through the ball more.  Arm peaked at 81 across the diamond. Ran a 7.67 sixty.
On the mound the lanky righty has arm side run on a fastball that lived in the zone at 76-78.  Exaggerated over-the-top slot creates a little funk for hitters to deal with. Clears the head for the release.  Quick arm, with a long arc to the over-the-top slot. Tall through balance with some rhythm in the delivery. Works level and on-line, landing with the toe strike slightly open.  Has feel for a downer, 12/6 breaking ball. Gradual tilt at 64-66. Window on the breaking ball should allow the fastball to elevate at times in the zone and above. Projection exists with the arm speed and length in the frame.

Length in a 6-foot-3, 185 pound frame.  Good projection left as the body continues to mature and add strength.  Right handed hitter is balanced, with good rhythm loading back.  Hands drop to their launch point with a short stride.  Good barrel ability on a swing geared to pull with an uphill emphasis.  Average bat speed, but with strength, producing an exit velocity of 88 mph.  Looks for extension.  Defensively, works to play through the ball with rhythm in the feet and average hands.  Transitions to a loose, high-3/4 slot with advanced accuracy on a variety of throws.  83 mph across the diamond with average carry.  Ran an 8.10 sixty.
On the bump, a long, loose arm swing gets to an over-the-top slot with average arm speed.  Fastball sits 73-76, filling the strike zone up throughout the bullpen.  Smooth delivery works with rhythm and level shoulders.  Gradual, 10/4 tilt to a breaking ball with a slight hump out of the hand at 61-65.  Change-up plays straight with decent deception from the hand speed at 61-65.
