6 foot 1, 215-pound build.  Balanced setup from the right side of the plate.  Weight works back during his load with his shoulders getting some uphill tilt.  Barrel works mostly flat through the zone.  Weight glides into the ball through the swing.  Looks to stay in the middle of the field with his exit velocity recorded at 88 mph.  Active feet, playing through the ball on the infield.  Average hands with clean transfers and a long arm action, throwing from a high ¾ slot.  Accurate arm that topped at 77 mph.  Recorded a 4.44 in the 30-yard dash.
On the mound, the righthander creates some angle on the fastball from an over-the-top slot.  Fastball sits 72-76.  Gradual, downer breaking ball is around the zone at 59-63.  Slight hump and roll out of the hand.  The change-up worked at 67-68 with some deception from the hand speed.  Some rhythm to the delivery, working to repeat.  Works level and on-line, landing in-line and square at foot strike.  Long arm swing as he stays tall over the rubber.  Average to above extension.
