Strong build at 5 foot 10, 160-pounds.  Some effort in the delivery that coils the lower half at balance with a low leg kick to the belt, closing the hips and front shoulder.  Front side works to stay on-line and create some downhill action in the shoulders.  Long arm swing has some elbow lead.  Above average arm speed and an over-the-top slot.  Rhythm and coil can create some issues for hitters.  His athleticism allows him to still have some feel for the fastball.  Fastball sat 77-80, playing harder vs. hitters at times.  Breaking ball works with 12/6 action at 64-66.  Gradual movement with a slight hump out of the hand on the curveball.  Misses were typically up in the zone.  Arm speed and athleticism suggests more could be coming as he develops better timing in the delivery.
Balanced setup from the right side with a wider base.  Weight works back during his load with his hands working down and back.  Uses the whole field with average feel for his barrel.  Weight gets stuck on his back leg at times creating some length in the swing.  Uphill bat path with his exit velocity recorded at 85 mph.  Plays aggressive through balls in the outfield using a two-hand catch.  Long arm action, throwing from a high ¾ slot.  Accurate arm with some carry that topped at 79 mph.  Recorded a 7.54 in the 60.

10.21.17
5-foot-10, 150 pound righty sat 67-70 from an over-the-top slot.  Works to an average leg kick, remaining level and tall at balance.  Front leg kicks out and swings to the foot strike as the upper half and head clear room for the long arm swing to get to the release point.  Lands on-line.  Around the zone with all three.  Control over command.  Straight change filled up the zone at 62-63 with similar hand speed to the fastball.  The breaking ball ranged 62-63 with gradual 10/4 sweeping action.  Around the zone, but down when missing the glove.
Right handed hitter starts open, working back to even on the stride.  Some stiffness as the swing works to be flat through the zone.  Exit velocity touched 79 mph off the barrel.  Arm speed reached 70 mph from right field.  Some accuracy on the throws.  Cautious to the ball and through the exchange.  Ran a 7.73 sixty.
