Notes from the Field (4.17.18)
Scouting Scratch (7.19.18)

Physical Description: Strong pitcherís frame, listed at 6-foot-4, 210 pounds. Minimal remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a three quarters arm slot. High leg kick, clean delivery.

Fastball: Sits 93-95 mph early in starts but quickly settles in at 91-93 mph. Tends to overthrow at times, with his command and control suffering as a result.

Secondaries: Complements his fastball with a changeup, splitter, curveball and slider. Arsenal will likely need to be cut down to by a pitch or two as he moves up the system. Splitter shows the most potential, coming in at 81-83 mph with late dive and the bottom falling out of the pitch when itís on. Flashes average potential. Changeup sits at 81-84 mph. Tends to telegraph the pitch by slowing his arm down. Two breaking balls seemed to run into each other at times, with the slider usually at 83-84 mph and curveball at 79-80 mph. The slider had more tilt, but is on the loose side, while his curveball is short with vertical break. Some pitches can also be on the slurvy side in between the two pitches at 80-82 mph.

Career Notes: Late round pick in 2017 following his junior season at Cal State Chico. Looked solid in spring training in 2017 and got placed in Low-A Greenville. Struggled mightily there and was reassigned to Lowell.

Summation: Has a long way to go developmentally, including the refinement of his arsenal and improved control. The physical tools are there to develop into an intriguing arm, but will need to take a few big steps forward to show major league potential.
