1/31/16
6-foot-4, 215-pound athletic build. Very talented right-handed pitcher. Shows smooth rhythm in his delivery. Good direction to the plate, landing on line at foot strike. Throws with a long back arm action into a high ¾ slot with quick arm speed. Fastball mostly sat 85-88 mph with some cut. Sharp slider at 75-77 mph. Changeup sat 77-80 mph with some action.

6-foot-4, 215-pound strong build with some projectability. Uses a slower tempo delivery that requires some effort and he is able to repeat. Shoulders tilt for leverage. He uses a clean, loose arm action with average arm speed coming through a ¾ slot, finishing with his momentum carrying towards first base side. His fastball sits between 86-88 mph and has touched 89 with some cut and sink to it. Secondary pitches continue to improve and are led by a hard, 75-78 mph slider that has sharp break across the plate with good depth. Throws a 75-76 mph power curveball with an 11/5 shape that has sharp, late break to it. Still developing feel for his 76-80 mph changeup that has late life when down in the zone.

6/8/15
6-foot-3, 205-pound thinner frame with some projectability. On the mound his delivery requires regular effort. There is some hip loading involved, but flies open with his front leg a bit too soon and lands slightly more open. Shoulders tilt for leverage. He uses a clean, loose arm action with average arm speed coming through a ¾ slot, finishing with his momentum carrying towards first base side. His fastball was thrown between 84-88 mph and touched 89 mph once during his warm up pitches, showing a sinking and tailing action at times. His breaking ball was thrown at 74-77 mph at an 11/5 plane showing signs of having sharp break when he stays on top of the pitch. He had a better feel for the breaking ball as he threw it more into his outing. Would really benefit from developing and using a changeup.


2/22/15
The 6-foot-4, 210-pound prospect is still on the raw side, but the ball comes out easy and there is plenty to with at the next level. He uses a slow tempo to his delivery with a tendency to lean in his delivery. His fastball shows arm-side run at 85-87 mph. He also showed off a hard 75 mph cut fastball. His slider has late break at 76-78 mph and he shows good arm speed on a 79-80 mph changeup.
