Physical: Above-average, starter’s build at 6-foot-1, 190lbs. 

Pitching: RHP - Begins from the left corner of the mound; momentum building pace that propels a lighting fast arm through a H ¾ slot. Repeated well and threw strikes, holding the zone from 89-91 mph on the FB (2118 rpms, heavy action). Mixed a well-spun 74-76 mph CB on an 11/5 tilt and countered with a more lateral 76-77 mph SL across the plate. Two different looks, then dropped in a CH that showed flashes at 77-78 mph (11 inches fade).


Physical: Strong, projectable 6-foot-1, 185lb frame with athleticism and durability out on the bump. 

Pitching: RHP - Started off the left side of the rubber with gradual pace to the delivery; got to a balance stack at waist height and drove down the slope using tempo and explosive movements. Created some down tilt at a H ¾ slot, landing strikes at 86-88, T89 mph on the FB (T2178rpms). Added a two-plane 74-76 mph breaker with late depth for K’s and gave hitters a different look on a 73-74 mph SL showing good tunnel at release (T12 inches HM, gradual). Later mixed in a quality 77-79 mph with extra extension (6+ feet, 67% zone rate) able to hold deceptiveness out of the hand. Feel for three pitches, sometimes four in the strike-zone, manipulating sequences to keep hitters off balance.


Physical: Strong, athletic build at 6-foot-1, 175 lbs.

Pitching: Works with good pace; fundamental balanced delivery; efficient lower half with quality hip-shoulder separation accelerating against a strong post leg; long, fluid arm action through a clean 3/4 release. FB: Has life out of the hand; profiles as a sinker/ 2-seam with up to 18" arm side run and a Bauer Unit of 25. CB: 11-5 Shape with tight break; up to 7.5" vertical drop and 5" horizontal movement.
