6-foot-1, 155-pound projectable frame.Projectable on the mound, showed quick arm speed with a ¾ arm angle and a loose arm action. Tall-and-fall type pitcher who uses easy effort. Balance is tall point with an in line shoulders in his delivery. Lands square with an athletic finish. Produced a fastball that came in at 79-81 mph; throws a heavy fastball with running action and very consistent control.Threw a 1/7 curveball 69-71 mph that showed consistent control and plus action. His changeup 74-75 mph shows tailing action and arm side command. Look for a big jump, has all the makings of high level arm, projection to the frame.


6-foot-1, 155-pound, longer, lean, wiry strong athletic frame, rounded shoulders, wider back with plenty of room for added weight gains. A right-handed pitcher, delivery is super smooth, with rhythm and timing. The hands start low, work up with smooth, higher leg kick, with coil to it. Loaded on the backside, post leg is strong, direction is inline to the plate, with a firm frontside. The glove arm tracks to the plate, with minimal pull  to it, is out front on release of the baseball. The arm action is long and clean on the backside, a bottom to top path, working out of a higher slot. Pitches downhill, fastball gets through the catcher. The fastball touched 79 mph, seen it higher, has a ton more in there. The breaking ball was up to 67 mph, showing proper spin and shape. Big time follow for me, loads of projection.
