Scouting Report: Big right-hander with excellent pitcher's frame. Workhorse who pitches deep into games. Led West Chester to the 2012 Division II National Championship. Strong makeup. Arsenal includes a 90-92 mph four-seam fastbal with arm side run, an average low-to-mid-80s slider with lateral movement, and a low 80s circle changeup with some drop.  Excellent pitchability.  will be tested at higher levels unless there is significant improvement with changeup.
