Scouting Notes: High follow in 2022 class. Athletic movement patterns for the young southpaw and arm really works. Breaking ball will need to tighten up moving forward but showed the ability to locate the pitch in the zone consistently. Fastball was up to 84mph and wouldn't be shocked if he's consistently in the mid 80s if not higher before it's all said and done.
Fastball: 81-84mph.
Fastball Spin Rate: 1981-2056
Breaking Ball: 60-63mph.
Breaking Ball Spin Rate: 1570-1945
Changeup: 66-67 mph.
