Long, lanky build at 6-foot-3, 190 pounds.  Repeats the delivery with good lines and an average leg kick.  High-3/4 slot with a long arm swing.  Slight hook out of the glove as the arm bottoms out.   Tall base at balance and easy effort.  Fastball ranged 80-82, around the zone.  Breaking ball rolled out of the hand with a slight hump at 67-69.  Gradual 11/6 arc.  Similar hand speed to the fastball. 
Offensively works from a balanced setup on the right side.  Short stride with waggle in the bat head.  Flat through the zone with a pull tendency.  Cut across the ball at times.  Exit velocity peaked at 87 mph.  Average hands and easy, clean exchanges at 1B.  Long arm swing, with some stiffness, gets to an over-the-top slot.  Looseness in the body through the catch and exchange.  Accuracy from several throwing positions.  Good carry at 80 mph out of the hand.

Listed at 6-foot-2, 180 pounds, with an athletic frame, the righty works from a 3/4 slot with a quick, loose arm.  Simple delivery that builds to a quicker tempo throughout, solid feel for balance, level shoulders, and landing on-line, has a small elbow lead in the arm swing.  The fastball sat 81-83 with run to his arm-side.  Flooded the zone out of the wind-up, with pitch-ability to both sides of the plate.  Command dropped out of the stretch a little.  The slider has a side to side sweep with some 10/4 action at times.  Most sliders were early and gradual, but a few put-away type sliders, flashed with better action, while still showing feel.  The arm-side run from fastball was made better behind a slider.  Slider topped at 68.
