Scouting Report

“The 5-foot-10, 165-pound right hander had a strong outing at the PBR 17U National Championship at Lakepoint.  Average, compact frame with some proportional strength. Works from a staggered windup with quiet first move and delivery repeatability.  Mixes timing on windup w/ pause after first step.  Short, quick arm path with ball coming out from behind his ear.  Fastball works 84-88 with good late life, generating some swing and miss.  Attacks with the fastball, pounding the zone in and out while elevating for chase. Good feel for glove side command.  Occasionally mixed CB at 72-74 with some depth to round out solid two-pitch mix. Some athleticism as a middle infielder as well, but projects to be a two-pitch bullpen arm at next level. “
