5 foot 5, 145-pound average build.  Relaxed setup from the left side.  Hands work back during his load with a short stride.  Loose hands with an aggressive approach working middle to his pull side.  Has some strength in his swing with above average bat speed.  Exit velocity recorded at 77 mph.  Plays athletic through balls in the outfield with average hands.  Accurate arm that topped at 84 mph. Smooth defender on the infield with feel around the first base bag.  Better than average hands with an accurate arm that topped at 76 mph.  Recorded a 7.37 in the 60.
Featured four pitches on the mound with a fastball that occasionally cut to the glove side.  The fastball ranged 73-76 with a peak spin rate of 1586 rpm.  Curveball has sharp, late tilt at 57-63.  Landed the breaking ball with consistency.  Slider swept out of the hand at 65-67.  Curveball spin rate up to 1925 rpm while the slider spin rate sat at 1821 rpm.  Change-up is a distant fourth pitch at this time sitting at 72 with early run out of the hand.  Tends to leave the arm behind  with misses up and to the arm side on the change-up.  Choppy delivery works for rhythm, lacking the ability to repeat pitch to pitch.  Level and on-line, lands in-line and with a closed front foot.  Medium arm swing fights some stiffness to a high-3/4 slot with average arm speed.
