Body Type: 5-foot-5, 120-pounds with average build

Mechanical/Delivery Notes: The RHP starts tall and has a slow-paced delivery. He is very mechanical throughout the whole delivery. Throws from a stiff ¾ slot

Fastball: FB is straight with little to no movement (61-65)

Curveball: CB is developing with little 12/6 break (58)

Changeup: CH is developing with little depth (55)

Pitchability: Has command of FB with developing off speed. Secondary pitches will have more command as he matures

Role: TBD

Additional Comments: He has good pitching mechanics but focuses too much on them. Once he loosens his body up, velocity and command should work as one.

 

Hit: Has a toe tap stride for timing with good hand to shoulders separation in his load. Sowed line drive production with a fluid swing. Showed the ability to hit to all sides of the field

Power: Line drive capabilities with some pop

Offensive Projections: Top of the order (72 exit velocity)

Run: 8.00 (60-yard dash)

Field: From the IF, he displays average footwork when taking angles on the baseball. Has decent glover work as he approaches the ball. Throws will a clean arm. He tends to play on his heels at times
