Scouting Report

2016 PBR Future Games - Team Pennsylvania 
2017 PBR Future Games - Team Pennsylvania


2/12/17 Still growing 6-foot-1, 180-pounder who competed for Team Pennsylvania at the 2016 PBR Future Games. Rhythmic delivery with hands and lead leg working in concert and chest-high leg lift. Deep arm stroke into a high three-quarter slot. Good direction to plate with slightly closed toe landing and gets over front side well. Fastball sat 84-85 with minimal effort. Curveball at 72-74 was slider-like with tight spin, but not a ton of depth. Also showed a straight change-up at 75-77.

8/4/16 6-foot, 165-pound primary pitcher with long limbs appears to have significant additional growth in his frame. Long takeaway from a side-step rocker out of a high 3/4 arm slot. Quick, fluid arm action with late life to a fastball that topped at 86 mph. Also showed good bite on mid-70s curveball out of the same arm slot. Worked three one inning stints over two days facing just one batter over the minimum while striking out four and not allowing a hit.

4/13/16 6-foot, 165-pound righty with fluid delivery and some hip coil action that adds deception. Loose, quick arm action from high 3/4 arm slot. Fastball showed late life at 82-83. Faced three hitters in relief with two strikeouts. Curveball shows promise at 69-70 with 11/5 shape.
