On the mound the wiry right hander uses a fluid delivery. Will be interesting to watch as he continues to get stronger and grow as a pitcher. Lower effort motion that is free of any strain throughout entirety. Clean arm through a near over the top slot. Ball seems to get on top of hitters constantly inducing weak contact. Assaulted the zone with a fastball that ranged 70-74 mph. Breaking ball was one of the better ones on the day at 60-64 mph. The curveball is a near 12/6 breaker with late bite creating depth. Above average pitchability for his age that should be very useful moving forward. Two-way prospect. A righty swinger that starts in a slightly open setup. Fluid efficient moves to loading sequence initiated by a leg kick. Path is level to contact with slight downhill tendencies. Feel to both gaps with line drive abilities. A functionally athletic defender in the infield with smooth actions. Ball skills are ahead of the curve for class and he has a quick transfer. Middle type skill set.
