Pitching

Body Type: 6-foot-3, 195 pounds. Tall, projectable body.
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Nice arm action out of a ¾ arm slot in his delivery showing early ability to utilize his body well mechanically. Fluid motion the provides good intent with actions.
Fastball: 74-76 mph. Heavier arm-side run with late action and accurate with it.

Curveball: 63-65 mph. Tight spin on this breaker with 11-6 tilt. Commands it very well and improved it as he threw more of them.
