Body: 6-2, 175-pounds. Larger athletic frame. High waisted. Lots of projection if he adds some strength and fills out a bit more.
Delivery: Side steps into a straight up and down knee lift. Stands on the 1B side of the rubber and lands toward the 3B side for some slight crossfire. Slower tempo delivery. Firm front leg at landing and is in a good fielding position.
Arm Action: RH. Tighter in the back as the ball doesn't get higher than the hip. Some deception as ball is kept behind his body till it comes out at a 3/4 slot. Average arm speed but consistent with the speed and slots on all pitches.
FB: T80, 79-80 mph. Pounded the zone with it for a 100% zone percentage. Decent VB average of 19 inches. Extension at 7.17 is well above average and helps give his FB some more perceived velo.
SL: 68-71 mph. Minimal VB so more sweeping movement. Consistent location in the zone at 80% zone percentage.
CH: 75-77 mph. Straight change. Nice diving movement. Consistent low in the zone.
CUT: 72-74 mph. Thrown at a slightly higher tilt which gives it that cutting action. Some present VB gives it some nice depth where hitters will swing over it or produce GBs. 100% zone percentage.

Hit: RHH. Balanced athletic stance with hands set behind the ear that stay neutral throughout. Uses a simple forward stride as the backside gets into a slight coil. Compact swig that gets onto his front side. Level swing path (74% on plane efficiency) that resulted in LDs throughout the round (62.5 LD %). Middle of the field approach. 
Power: 88.00 max exit velocity. 307ft max distance during BP. Current singles hitter with needed increases in bat speed to better power.
Arm: RH. INF - 75.00 mph. Steps up wide to the ball. Heavier feet. Average footwork on DPs.
Defense: Needed extra steps to get off throws. All throws were on a downward angle. ⅖ accurate.
Run: 7.58 runner in the 60.
