6 foot 1, 160-pound lanky frame.  Body is loose and athletic. Fluid tempo to his delivery, starting with a rocker step, going into his leg kick working up to the bottom of his chest.  Compact at the balance point, working slightly across his body to the plate with a square toe landing. Long, loose arm action, throwing from a high ¾ slot.  Arm has some quickness to it. Kept his fastball down in the zone with run and sink. Fastball worked mostly at 82-83 mph, topping at 85 mph. Breaking ball has a sweeping action with some bite at times working at 68-70 mph.  Big break with hard spin. Potential out pitch. Has some feel for his breaking ball and expanded the zone with it. Should see his velocity tick up in the future as his athletic body adds strength.

Thin frame at 6 foot 1, 155-pounds.  Smooth delivery, getting started with a short step to the side, tucked during his leg lift, with his knee working to his chest.  Works in line to the plate, landing square, with level shoulders.  Quick arm, with a long arm action, throwing from a high ¾ slot. Deception, as the ball looks like its coming out of his sleeve.  Fastball has some run at 82-84 mph. Breaking ball has 11/5 tilt with late break at 70-73. Feel for breaking ball maintaining arm speed.  Flashed at changeup at 74 mph.  Overall, strike thrower with more to come as body matures.

Intriguing lanky frame that has some athleticism at 6-foot, 155 pounds.  Plenty of projection left as he continues to add strength. Rhythmic delivery with a hand pump over the rubber as he works from pivot to balance.  Smooth throughout, is level, in-line, landing with a soft heel-to-toe foot strike. Fastball has consistent late arm side run at 78-80. Flooded the zone with a feel for each side of the plate with the fastball.  Long, loose arm swing with above average quickness gets to a high-¾ slot. Tall through balance, and controlled over the rubber, works with some ease. Slider sweeps, working out of a slightly lower slot than the fastball, ranging 68-70.  Around the zone, misses were to the glove side. Occasionally slows the arm on the change-up, sitting 68-70 with some sink. Good feel for pitching and the fastball will play harder than the gun reading with its movement.
In the box, a right handed hitter, uses a leg kick and long stride.  Pull approach, hooking some balls. Barrel awareness needs to improve.  Exit velocity peaked at 53 mph but will take a quick jump with more barrel.  Long arm action and ¾ slot on the infield with some carry at 79 mph across the diamond.  Works to play through the ball, clean exchange, and cautious with the transition. Hands and feet fight for rhythm, creating different catch points for the hands in relation to the body.  Ran a 7.80 sixty.
