Strong shoulders and muscular physique at 6-foot-1, 190 pounds.  Strong lower half.  Still maturing with room to his ceiling.  Fastball touched 91 twice in the bullpen, sitting 85-88.  Arm is strong and quick from a long, loose arm action, getting to a high-3/4 slot.  Slow to balance, average leg kick, working to pace the delivery afterwards.  Choppy rhythm, level throughout, landing on-line and square.  Little stiff on the front side.  Head leaves the line early.  Hips generate speed and get through the pitch, creating a slight fall to the 1B side.  Change-up at 74-77 with good hand speed creating deception.  In the zone with run to the arm side.  The breaking ball is hard at 69-70 with sharp 12/6 tilt.  Up-down misses at times as he works to create direction through the target. 

Right handed hitter works from a wide base and slight weight shift back to load.  Small stride, basically picking the foot up and replacing it.   Aggressive back side.  Bat sweeps the zone somewhat, with advanced bat speed.  Average barrel awareness.  Exit velocity of 94 mph off the barrel.  Quickness in body translated to the 60 as well, running a 7.17 on the laser timer.  Defensively, works to find rhythm in the feet.  Wide base at the catch, centering the ball.  Hands can get deep, funneling to the mid-section.  Clean transition to a long arm swing and strong arm.  Advanced carry with some accuracy at 86 mph across the diamond.

Intriguing young player with some quickness and strength present.  6-foot, 170 pounds, fastball was erratic in the zone at 81-82.  Better than average arm speed works to an over-the-top slot with a long arm arc.  Tall at balance the shoulders stay level.  Slight cross-fire in the landing creates some finish to the 1B side.  Breaking ball ranged 63-65 with 10/4 tilt.  Showed feel for the pitch.  Straight change comes from a slower arm speed, in the zone at 68-71.
Defensively works with average hands.  Feet can be cautious as the body plays high.  Feet work to load the arm.  Clean, cautious exchanges get to a long arm arc and over-the-top slot.  Arm carried with some accuracy at 80 across the diamond.  Offensively, the right-handed hitter works from a slightly closed base.  Lacks a load and uses a short stride to produce better than average bat speed.  Some uphill leverage and wants extension.  Pull tendency as the top hand is dominate.  Strong hands controlled the bat head that starts in a vertical position.  Barrel awareness can improve but exit velocity measured 88 off the barrel.  Ran a 7.50 sixty.
