Scout Notes from 2023 NC Top Prospect Games
Big frame and physical appearance over the rubber at 6-foot-2, 230 pounds. Coils around the back hip as the arm plunges out of the glove working through a long arm swing to an over-the-top slot. Better than average arm speed. Fastball ranged 82-84, 2097rpm. Some ride and run. Occasional sink when working to the arm side. Breaking ball at 70-73, 1784rpm with sweeping action out of the hand.
Scout Notes from 2023 Team Carolina Trials East
Physical presence with broad shoulders and strength in the 6-foot-2, 225 frame. Choppy rhythm working to coil around the back hip through balance, uncoiling back to an on-line foot-strike. Long, loose arm swing. Over-the-top release. Fastball at 83-85, 1705rpm. Sink metrics. Ball plays true out of the hand with 12:15 spin tilt at release. Change-up over slider but both should be used to attack hitters. Change-up at 76-77, 1698. Slows the hand a bit. Has run. Slight hump on the breaking ball, working for 10/4 tilt, sitting 71-75, 2030rpm.
