Pitching: Herky-jerky; hooks behind with high over the top slot. FB: T 76 MPH, 73-75 MPH; stays true. CB: 56-58 MPH. 2-8.  CH: 55-56 MPH; holds plane.

6-foot-5, 175-pounder sat 72-73 from a high 3/4 arm slot with a wrap in the back and a quick arm. Showcased a feel for the zone with arm-side run to his fastball. Curveball showed 1/7 rotation with average depth at 58-60. Changeup sat 58-61 at fastball arm speed with arm-side run from a slightly different arm slot. Athletic frame has room to continue adding strength. Additional velocity spikes are likely.

2/24/18

Initiates swing from neutral set up with knee to knee leg kick and stride to neutral. Separation is adequate . Weight shift is passive and there is length to swing. Back elbow leak in front of hands creates drag. A bat exit velocity of 70 mph was recorded.

Defensively, Hands and footwork around the bag are adequate. Transfer is clean and throwing motion has length. There is tendency to let ball get deep.

On the mound, works out of high 3/4 arm slot with long loose arm action. Delivery is low effort. Steps closed creating first base fall. Would benefit from more aggressive hip coil and back side load. FB sat 65-67 being cut to both glove and arm side. CB at 58 60 mph had 1-7 shape and rolling action. Long levers and loose arm action make interesting young follow.
