6 foot 3, 215-pound build with present strength.  Starts on the mound with a small rocker step with his hands working up to his face then down to his chest.  Average leg lift, working in line to the plate.  Arm works down out of the glove with a high ¾ release.  Gets down angle on his fastball sitting at 74-76 mph and topping at 78 mph.  Curveball has depth with 12/6 break at 61 mph.  Flashed a straight changeup at 68-70 mph.  Slider has some across action with little break at 68 mph.  Stayed around the plate with all four pitches.
Balanced from the right side with a wide base.  Weight and hands work back during the load with a short stride.  Has lift in his swing working mostly middle to his pull side.  Average bat speed with strength.  Exit velocity recorded at 86 mph.  Feet work to the ball on the infield, catching the ball in the center of his body with average hands.  Funnels to the belt after catch, with a longer exchange and arm action, throwing from a high ¾ slot.  Accurate arm across the diamond that topped at 78 mph.  Recorded a 7.97 in the 60.

6 foot 3, 215-pound build.  Large frame.  Straight line build.  Occasional run to the fastball at 76-78, around the zone.  Showed feel and some deception with his offspeed offerings.  Slider is sharp, working late, at 68-72.  Breaking ball is also around the zone at 65.  Slider ahead of curveball on this day but both are useable.  Change-up has angle out of the hand with fade at 70-72.  Near the fastball with his arm speed, there is feel for location on the change.   Some rhythm to a slow tempo delivery, slightly coiling at balance with a low leg kick.  Swings the front side open, working level and landing on-line and square.  Long arm swing to an over-the-top release.  Average extension over a stable front side.
Hits from the right side sitting into his legs.  Weight works back during his load, using a short stride with quiet hands.  Raises up out of his legs through contact at times looking to lift the ball.  Gap to gap approach with some stiffness in the hands.  Exit velocity recorded at 80 mph.  Waits on the ball on the infield, catching the ball deep at times.  Funnels to the center of his body after catch with clean exchanges, using a long arm action, throwing from a high ¾ slot.  Some carry to his throws that topped at 80 mph.  Recorded a 4.31 in the 30-yard dash.
