April 2018
The 6-foot-0, 175 pound RHP held the Plainsmen in check for 7 innings in a complete game loss. Fastball sat between 77-80 MPH and mixed an effective offspeed curveball at 67-68 MPH while striking out 5 batters.  Also helped himself at the plate with an RBI single.
 
East-West Battle (July 2017)

Efficient strike thrower with decent mechanics. Sits 77-79, can touch 81. Throws 12/6 curve and can spot his circle change for a strike. Excellent pick off mechanics - picked 3 runners off 1st in his start. Can swing the bat and showed a good eye of the strike zone.

NY Games (June 25-27, 2017)
Lean athletic build at 6-foot- 175-pounds. Offensively- At the plate balanced approach with a fluid compact swing, long easy extension out in front with some signs of porjectable power, 87 MPH exit velocity. Defensively- Stays behind the ball with average footwork, glove works, short choppy arm-action with 77 MPH arm-strength from the corner. Pitching - Quick tempo in mechanics, short arm-action, fastball sat 77-78 MPH with some arm-side action. Curveball shows gradual loose shape in the upper 60's.
