Scouting Report

04.14.17
Athletic build with a long frame.  Strength in the legs and core.  Loose hips.  Over-the-top slot with rhythm in a strong arm swing and front side.  Fastball peaked at 88, sitting 84-86.  Hard slider, with tilt at 76.  Change flashed fade, getting swing and miss from left-handed hitters, ranging 74-76.  Command waivered at times with all three, showing periods of dialing into the zone.  When fastball sat in the zone, offspeed was there as well.  Athletic in-line delivery that created early uphill torque in the shoulders.  Front side works to create downhill leverage allowing pitches to change plane when on time.  Competes with some animation at times.  Pitches with emotion.
