6-foot-4, 215-pound solid frame. At the plate, the left-handed hitter recorded an exit velocity of 85 mph. Begins in an open stance, has a small load and uses a leg kick before his swing. Had raw bat speed, as well as an uphill swing plane and high finish. Barreled up some balls during his round. Gap to gap approach. In the infield, made throws across the field up to 76 mph; has sure hands and rhythmic footwork. Movements laterally were athletic. During the event, he ran the 60-yard dash in 7.66. Smooth on the mound, he showed quick arm speed, used a loose arm action and an over-the-top angle. He is a tall-and-fall type pitcher who uses easy effort. Has an athletic balance point with uphill shoulders. Lands square with an athletic finish. His fastball was 83-85 mph with a max of 85 mph. Had a tight curveball (66-69). Showed in the zone command and sinking action on his changeup (73-75). Projectable on the mound - consistent, repeatable mechanics and body control for a player his size. High follow.
