Body: 6-0, 170-pounds. Athletic, lean frame with some room to add mass.
Delivery: Sets up on the left side of the rubber and has a quick, rhythmic windup. Hands stay at waste high, until separating and dropping into his backside.
Arm Action: RH. Arm action is long and cross body. Throws from way outside his body at a 3/4 arm slot, and torques his entire body towards the plate creating a high amount of movement on all of his pitches.
FB: T87, 85-87 mph. Fastball had some natural run with a well above average Induced Vertical Break of 20.5 inches. Showed ability to sneak up and get in on RHH.
CB: 73-75 mph. Big sweeping curveball that was a bit inconsistent in terms of depth. The breaking ball had 9 inches of horizontal movement, and with some more feel for that pitch looks to be a big swing and miss pitch.
CH: Change had a lot of depth with an Induced Vertical Break of 16 inches on the offspeed pitch. Throws from same arm slot and arm speed as FB, pitches pair well together.  

Hit: RHH. Sets up tall with his feet slightly more than shoulder width apart. Hands are tight to his body and has a small leg kick with a slight weight shift before exploding towards the baseball Short and compact swing. Hands and bat are tight to body throughout swing, and his a bit of an inside out bat path. Consistent center to left center approach. Max exit velocity reached 89.2 mph.
Power: 90.00 max exit velocity
Arm: RH. OF - 89.00 mph. Long 3/4 arm slot. Whippy arm action. Slings the baseball. Consistent with arm slot and accuracy.
Defense: Fluid and athletic movements in the OF. Bounces around. Gains lot of momentum through the ball on throws.
Run: 7.58 runner in the 60.

Body5-11, 160-pounds. Medium athletic build. Well proportioned with projectable size. 
HitLH. Feet are straight up with slight lean into the backside and lower hanging hands. Utilizes a toe tap trigger.  Long but smooth stroke that worked on a more upward plane. Higher barrel finish that is extended through contact. Feel for the barrel with contact out in front. Pullside approach.
Power: 84 mph exit velocity. Some present pullside gap power. Rotational acceleration range of 16gs to 24gs gives him a decent power ceiling. 
Arm: RH. INF - 75 mph. OF - 78 mph. Shorter arm action from both the OF and INF. Average arm strength for level. Some present tail on OF throws that were accurate long hops to the bag. INF throws at times were a little high but was quick to release and showed the ability to throw on the move. 
Defense: In the OF showed solid defensive actions getting around and coming through. Set up feet quickly which helped with his quickness to release. In the INF showed above average range and quickness. Better to his forehand side. 
Run7.67 runner in the 60.
