1/27/18 - Max FB: 81, FB: 79-81, CB: 73, CH: 69-70
6-foot-5, 215-pound, RHP continues to show projectable frame w/ velocity upside.  XL tall, athletic w/ some physicality.  Projectable w/ lot of growth.  Pitches with a full wind-up w/ short rocker step into setting up on first base side of the rubber.  Chest high leg kick w/ hip turn into leg drive and H ¾ release.  Quick arm.  Uses lower half well in his delivery.  Future velocity growth will be from frame maturation.  Glove side can be stronger, will help keep on direction.  FB w/ short arm-side run, occasional ride through zone.  Slurvy CB was closer to a SL on this day w/ more side to side life vs. up/down.  CH w/ arm-speed, fade and sink.  Around the zone w/ 3, projects to command.  A must see senior this spring if looking for an arm.
11/5/17 - Max FB: 83, FB: 81-83, CB: 65-69, CH: 70-71
6-foot-5, 220-pound, RHP just scratching the surface of what he can be, flashing two above average off-speed pitches w/ projectable arm speed.  Prototypical pitcher size w/ broad shoulders, some lower half strength.  Projects to be a bull-dog, lot of projection remaining.  Pitches from a full wind-up w/ short rocker step into the first base side of the rubber.  Leg kick w/ hand rhythm into hip drive and H ¾ release w/ proper finish.  Glove is just along for the ride, can work on bringing it to his chest to improve direction.  Can incorporate back legs more, front-leg driven w/ occasionally drifting down the slope, which affects consistency of off-speed stuff.  CB flashed above average w/ tight rotation, proper shape when stayed on top.  CH w/ arm-speed, fade and sink flashed above average.  Around the zone, projects to command as back leg, timing and direction gain consistency.
