Scouting Report: Undersized right-handed reliever with athletic, lean frame. Works from the stretch on first base side of the rubber. Short arm action in back; quick, live arm. Plus fastball ranges 92-96 mph and generally sits 94-95 mph with arm-side run. Also features a plus slider ranging 82-84 mph with sharp, two-plane break and bat-missing ability. Lacks a third offering, and fastball/slider command and control tend to waver and flatten out in multiple-inning stints. Has the pure stuff to pitch out of the back end of a bullpen.
