Body Type: 5-foot-10, 200-pound physical frame.
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Has an overall smooth and natural delivery. A dynamic lower half with a compact high ¾ arm action.
Fastball: 80-83mph. 2,000-2,200 spin rate with 100% efficiency on Rapsodo. Ball comes to the plate on a slight downward angle with ability to locate within the zone.
Curveball: 66-69mph. A developing pitch that has good movement moving on a 10/4 plane but struggled to throw in the zone. Needs to become more comfortable and build confidence with this offering.
Pitchability: In the zone consistently with fastball, in and out of the zone with curveball.

2/03/19

Body Type: 5-foot-10, 200 pounds. Solid build.
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Has a longer, loose arm action leading up to his ¾ arm slot at release. Gets downhill well with nice leg extension and showed nice intent with his throws.
Fastball: 79-82 mph. Gets on hitters quickly with some jump. Last arm-side behind it too.
Curveball: 65-68 mph. Average movement on it right now. Improving grip/release point.
Changeup: 69-72 mph. Showed some late arm-side run and kept it low for the most part.
Knuckleball: 67-68 mph. Had signs of life displaying excellent movement to it but can improve that consistency.
Pitchability: Reveals a stronger arm that still had more to give as he activates his core and lower half more. Intent is there which will help him obtain his goals of improvement. Ability is there, just more work to do.
Role: Starter.

On the hill the righty maintains tempo throughout delivery. Delivery requires regular effort showing long, whippy arm action through a high-¾ slot. Arm strength/speed are above average for class. Ball comes out well with his fastball sitting 79-81 mph. Spins a near 12/6 breaking ball that has present sharpness with developing depth at 65-66 mph. Tends to slow arm a big on his 66-68 mph changeup. The offering shows slight cut. Breaking ball looks to be the more developed of the two offerings.  Would like to see him in the zone more often as he possesses arm talent and above average stuff. Two-way prospect. A right-handed hitter that starts in a balanced setup. Goes with a bat tip for rhythm and leg kick for timing. Strength stands out in his intent driven swing. Bat speed isn’t far behind. Middle of the lineup type with some loft power to pull side. An infielder with a corner skill set. Quicker than he is fast with his feet presently. Glove looks to be on par for class. Would be aided by playing lower through the baseball. Showed the arm for the left side.

60-yard dash: 7.96
Infield Velocity: 79
Exit Velocity: 88

6/20/17

A righty swinger that starts in a balanced setup. Uses a double tap to get lower half going. Bat maintains momentum throughout load into launch. Strong kid that takes a level path to the baseball. Has some bat speed in there and ball jumped off his bat when he stayed through contact. Middle of the lineup type guy. Behind the plate he starts in a higher crouch. Footowrk has some quickness to it as he squares himself up during his transfer. Transfer skills are above average for his age. Arm action has some funkiness to it but the ball normally arrived on the bag.

Home to First: 5.09

1/22/17

5-foot-10, 185-pound prospect. On the mound, the right handed pitcher throws through a ¾ slot with short arm action. Funky, quick tempo delivery. Fastball sits between 73-76 mph while displaying some arm-side run. Also mixes in a 61-63 mph changeup thrown with near fastball arm speed. At the plate he starts tall and uses a double tap load and stride. Hands move back fluidly to launch. Takes a mostly level bath to the ball with solid strength through contact. Barrel gets in and out of the zone quickly. Above average bat speed and showed gap to gap pop in batting practice. From the crouch, he uses a quick jab step to the outside of his body. Transfer has some length as he gets it back to his ear. Throws with short arm action from ¾ slot.

60-yard dash: 8.13
Exit Velocity: 84
Catcher Velocity: 71
Pop Time: 1.96-2.00
