3.24.18

6-foot, 198-pound, strong, thick well proportioned athlete, back is wide and shoulders are squared off, a strong athletic kid. A right-handed pitcher, who also swung the bat at this event. Off the mound was extremely impressive, the delivery has tempo and timing to it, pounded three pitches for strikes. The hands start low and work up with his quick tempo leg kick. The frontside is strong and works down the mound and lands inline with target. The arm action is slightly longer, more of a bottom to top path, works out of a natural ¾ slot. The fastball reached 84 mph, with good action to arm side, the baseball is like a bowling ball when it arrives at the plate, heavy. The breaking ball has slurve break to it, clocked at 69-70 mph, showed above average feel for change up at 72-74 mph. Times to the plate are quick at 1.28, worked quick between pitches, controlled the entire bullpen, extremely confident. At the plate, the tee exit velocity was an easy 85 mph, baseball jumps off the bat. The stance is slightly open, feet are wider than shoulder width, with the back elbow extended outward. The swing is level to up, with more of a pull approach, has gap power at the current moment. Looks to use the entire body to hit the baseball, made hard solid contact during rounds of batting practice. Projects for me off the mound, chance that he is going to really climb here in the next 6 months, high follow.

40-Yard Dash: 3.93

Exit Velocity: 85 MPH
