6-foot-1, 170-pound right-handed pitcher. The fastball sat 84 -85 mph, arm side action to the pitch. The breaking ball is 66-68 mph, needs additional fastball hand speed to the pitch. The slider is tight in action, sitting at 70 mph. The changeup is a work in progress. The delivery has crossfire with the feet and above 3/4 in slot. The arm is whippy and loose, chance to bump velocity as he matures. The tracking is solid, minimal glove pull as he makes his way into foot strike. Good looking arm as he pounded the zone.

6-foot-1, 170-pound right-handed pitcher and middle infielder. Had  a good day at the event, the arm works and he has a big upside on the mound. On the mound, the fastball touched 85 mph, arm side action on the pitch. The spin pitch is very big in shape as he cuts the ball too soon in the arm swing. The shape of the pitch is correct, just needs more velocity added to it. Currently sits at 66 mph. The changeup is a developing pitch. The delivery is online with his feet, the slot is ¾. The post foot is on top of the rubber. The tracking of the front shoulder is done appropriately. Tempo to the delivery is quick and the frame is long and lanky. Really like him on the bump, big upside with more to come. Positionally, ran a 7.14 sixty on the laser at the event. Threw 76 mph across the diamond, as he flips the ball over to first from a low angle. Needs prep steps involved in his fielding as it takes him a while to get rid of it, as he stops his feet. Tee exit velocity of 80 mph. The bat setup is wide in base, front foot open to start. The hands are set high, and the path is long to contact. The finish is high. Good looking athlete, big follow on the mound.

Tee Exit Velocity - 80 mph
INF Velocity-76 mph

6-foot-1, 170-pound, long and lengthy athletic frame. The shoulders are rounded, neck and limbs are long, has room to fill out and add weight on. A right-handed pitcher, has an easy clean, effortless delivery. The leg kick is smooth, athletic, and repeats it,  gets to a good gather, with weight staying over the back side. The separation is on time, lead arm has minimal pull and stays on the target. The stride foot lands slightly across the body, however gets good extension out front and shows the ability to locate away from his arm side. The arm action is super clean and loose on the backside, works out of a natural ¾ slot, fastball sitting 85-88 mph, with more in there as he adds strength. Pounded it to both sides, with some sink to arm side. The baseball jumps when it gets to the plate, with late life. The breaking ball is a small curveball , more sidespin- slurve, clocked slower at 64-66 mph. A tweak in finger placement, with more slider release action, should increase velocity to it, with more depth. Times to the plate were at 1.50, looked to be very comfortable and confident on the mound. Big time arm, high level guy, need to see him this spring.
