5-foot-9, 165-pound, right-handed hitting third baseman/right-handed pitcher. Strong, proportional frame. Started on the mound against Hitters on day one. Short arm action, high ¾ slot. Hands rock over head with a rocker step to initiate a tall/fall type delivery that he repeats well. Fastball sat 74-76 mph, worked ahead early, comfortable throwing up in the zone as a swing-and-miss pitch. Curveball 59-61 mph, 11/5 shape, slight depth at times. Changeup played at 64-65 mph, used sparingly, played straight. Easy control for the barrel at the plate, consistently made hard contact. Showed well in the field at third base, made a ridiculous diving stop to save multiple runs from scoring in a bases-loaded situation late in the game. Name-to-know in Illinois’ 2025 class.

Gael Urbieta (2025) started on the mound and impressed. He sat 74-76 mph with his fastball, easily spotting it to both sides of the plate. He mixed in a changeup and curveball as well, showing feel for both of them at times. Urbieta’s glove impressed as well, as he made a ridiculous diving stop to save multiple runs from scoring in a bases-loaded situation late in the game.
