Body6-1, 195-pounds. Physical body with good thick strength and rounded shoulders
DeliveryCompact delivery, tight and quick with up-tempo actions to bring momentum down the hill. Front leg is strong; times where hip can spin-off but when he's getting downhill it's powerful into the zone.
Arm Action: RH. Depth out of glove to 3/4. Very fast, live arm.
FBT93.1, 89-91 mph. Effectively wild control. Could miss zone and come back next pitch and dot it down/away. Ability to change the location and get a swing and miss up.
SL76-81 mph. An above-average pitch that has a chance to be even better in near future. Tight and sharp with late horizontal break. Best ones were put away pitches for swing and miss.
CH85-87 mph. A hard bottom that was enough seperation from FB to dive under barrels. Utilized when he needed to switch sequences.

Body: 6-foot-1, 200-pounds. Thick and powerful body type, muscular from calves all the way up through his shoulders.

Delivery: Simple with good hand/foot rhythm, high knee lift with tuck and gather over the rubber, separates on time as he starts down the slope, kicks out stride foot as he sits into his backside, firm strike foot w/online direction, creates leverage and torque against stride leg, shallow backside arm action, quick arm, sneaky high-3/4 slot not easy to pick up for hitters.

FB: Sat 90-91 mph, aggressively uses FB in attacking manner, plays quicker than the velocity due to that sneaky release point. Avg spin rate 2159 w/high of 2318 and impressive average induced vertical break of 18.8, w/high of 21.2, indicating what we saw live, that being his ability to pitch up in the zone.

SL: With that ability to pitch up in the zone w/FB, his slider (76-81 mph) plays exceptionally well off of that. Tight and tilty slider w/depth, used this pitch to punch out 3 of the 4 batters, twice looking. Average 2200 spin rate w/high of 2379. Feel of the pitch and ability to locate it were impressive.

CB: Flashed this pitch, 73 mph, but just the one. Clearly the slider that is his main secondary offering.

CHG: Did not show or utilize a CHG

Summary: The demeanor, the two-pitch repertoire, the raw stuff, and the ability to strike out batters all suggest he's got the makings of a late inning/high leverage type reliever, both at the collegiate level and beyond. Good chance he will be able to add more spin to the slider and with additional velocity gains to the fastball, his ability to pitch up in the zone w/the fastball will allow him to get punch-outs w/both pitches.

PBR N CA Underclass Games - 5-foot-10, 175-pounds, thicker stout body type, chance to pack on some muscle on lower half and develop lower body power as he matures, shoulders are fairly narrow. Competed as a two-way player in the showcase, primary spot is on the mound. Overhand slot, arm speed is solid and shoulder works with looseness. Short arm action, some cross body stride, stiffens up front leg as he get through release point, has some rhythm and uses core well throughout his delivery. Fastball was sneaky, occasional riding action and was an effective pitch for him. Showed feel of the curveball with some slurvy break which comes from having to get his hand around the cross body stride. Given his age and time of year, that peak of 83 mph will keep going up as he moves through his high school years. Offensively he has some strength in the bat. Starts with an open stance and makes an aggressive move to the pull side with some barrel life. Lays back on ground balls a bit much, defensive tools are that of a 3rd baseman, with enough arm for the left side and limited range.
