3.17.17 - Kentucky commit. Currently ranked No. 1 in the PBR Illinois class of 2017. 6-foot-7, 240-pound right-handed pitcher. Works from a low ¾ arm angle with a short arm action. Drop and drive delivery with a closed landing, creating a slight cross fire angle. Drop and drive causes him to occasionally get underneath the ball, flattening out the fastball. Fastball worked 89-91 mph early on in the outing, settled in 87-89 mph. Slider sat 77-79 mph with sweeping action, snapped off one that flashed swing and miss potential.

Showed increased velocity at the Super 60, topping at 93 mph while sitting 91-92. Works across his body from 3/4 slot, open-toe landing, moderate effort for premium velocity. Fastball has heavy feel to the arm side with run and sink. Changeup has shown improvement, 83-85 mph with arm-side sink. Slider ranged between 78-79 mph, tendency to get underneath, more lateral in action. Also threw a curveball at 77-78.


10.20.16 - Started for the Reds Midwest Scout Team and allowed two runs on five hits while striking out one. He has a big, strong frame at 6-foot-7, 240 pounds. He pitches with a low arm slot and short arm action for a pitcher his size. The lower slot gets arm-side sink and run to his fastball, which started out 88-91 and settled into the high 80s, inducing weak contact. He slowed his arm some on his changeup, but did flash feel for the pitch. It was 81-82. His breaking ball was slurvy and flat at 71-75.

With more refinement, could be a plus offering in the future. Threw a high-volume of strikes with fastball/slider combination.
