Scouting Report

8/13/22

6-foot-6, 200-pound RHP. He opened some eyes with his projection. You can dream on his frame and stuff. He has room to fill out and repeats for his size. Long levers that he can control and be on time. In his four innings, the fastball sat 87-90 with a little natural cut, and the slider was 80-3, with some depth. He created uncomfortable at-bats for hitters. If he puts the work in, his ceiling is high.
