He shows quick, effortless arm action that generated a top velocity of 85 mph. At the plate, the left-handed hitter maintains balance throughout his swing. He uses a quick, easy load and a short path to the ball while achieving extension. He shows gap-to-gap power potential. He registered a 7.36 60-yard dash on a slow track. On the mound, the lefty uses a high 3/4 arm slot and long, loose arm action. He possesses quick arm speed and a smooth rhythm throughout his delivery. His fastball sits 80-82 mph while showing late natural sinking action. He showed excellent command of a 69-70 mph sharp, sweeping curveball. His changeup, which sits at 72-73 mph, is thrown near fastball arm speed and shows sinking movement. In addition, he displayed a 70 mph split-finger fastball.
