11/5/17 - Max FB: 85, FB: 82-84, CB: 72-74, SF: 72-75
6-foot-0, 190-pound, RHP shows quick arm w/ projectable off-speed stuff.  Medium, athletic frame w/ some present strength, projection.  Pitches from a full wind-up w/ short rocker step into third base side of the rubber.  Leg kick into hip drive and H ¾ release.  High glove coming through adds deception, needs to work on finishing with it closer to the chest.  Finishes upright w/ little back bend.  Quick arm.  Uses legs well in delivery.  Straight FB shows occasional arm side run.  Medium downer CB w/ proper shape/rotation/depth.  SF flashes dive, better to his arm-side than glove-side.  Strike thrower has been the same guy in 3 separate looks, almost all a month apart w/ velocity ticking up.  
10/1/17 - Max FB: 82, FB: 80-82, CB: 73-74, SF: 74-76
*Seen better velo in game
6'0, 190-pound, RHP shows 3 avg pitches w/ repeatable delivery.  Medium, athletic build w/ present lower half strength, physical projection.  Pitches from a full wind-up w/ short rocker step into 3rd base side of rubber.  High leg kick w/ hands even w/ hat into hip drive and H ¾ release.  Glove action creates deception w/ it drawing hitter’s eyes, can be better action in follow through.  Gets downhill.  FB flashes late arm side run.  CB is slurvy, got around it on this day.  SF flashes late dive, inconsistent.

9/9/17 - Max FB: 84, FB (81-84), CB (73), SF (74-75)
5-11, 190 pound righty shows a quick arm w/ ability to fill the strike zone.  Full windup w/ H 3/4 release.  Breaks hands at hat level w/ high glove disguising release point, increasing deception.  Leads with front hip well, lower half involved in the delivery.  Gets downhill.  FB is straight when elevated, some sink when down.  CB is medium 12-6 downer that comes up out of hand.  SF flashes dive, but inconsistent.  Pumps strikes (14 of 20), competes.  Profiles as a college pitcher that could help right away as a freshman.
