6/6/16
6-foot-1, 195-pound athletic, projectable frame. In the box the right-hander starts open before using a short stride as a timing mechanism. Hands move back before getting through the zone with average batspeed on an uphill path. Better to his pull side at this stage. Registered an exit velocity of 86 mph and ran an 8.11 60-yard dash. Good size/frame behind the plate. Receiving skills are still developing. Tendency to catch the ball really late. Needs to improve presentation and finish. He throws the ball from slot close to his ear. Pop times ranged between 2.02 to 2.15 with top velocity of 73 mph from the crouch. A two-way prospect that bring athleticism to the mound. Has some looseness to his arm while working through a high ¾ slot. Fastball has some natural run to it while sitting 79-82 mph. Throws a power curveball that has tight, sharp break to it at 71-74 mph. Has feel for a changeup that he threw with fastball armspeed. Good pitchability.

Good direction to the plate landing on line at foot strike. Two pitch mix with the fastball sitting 79-81 mph. Curveball sat 69-71 mph with good depth. At the plate he starts open and uses a rhythmic hands back load as he strides forward. He takes a downhill path to the ball and gets in and out of the zone quickly.
