Dispatches from the Fort 2014 (3.27.14)
Scouting Scratch: Fall Instructs Part One (10.8.14)
Scouting Scratch: Cosart, Glorius... (7.12.16)

Physical Description: Large, soft, bad body. Lacks physical conditioning and projection. Looks heavier than listed weight.

Mechanics: Three-quarters arm slot. Low-effort, controlled delivery. Medium leg kick. Arm action works. Lacks momentum and extension. Lands upright and stiff. Works quickly, repeats delivery.

Fastball: 87-89 mph. Tops out at 90 mph. Pitch shows arm-side run, but lacks life. Doesnít miss many bats. Average command and control. Fringe-average potential.

Slider: 79-82 mph. Solid feel for pitch. Slurvy 2-to-8 break. Two-plane movement, will show depth. Average potential.

Changeup: 79-81 mph. Pitch shows fade and throws with deceptive arm speed. Fringe-potential offering.

Curveball: 68-71 mph. Long break. Slow, loopy, and doesnít consistently snap off. Tends to roll to the plate. Below-average potential, but didnít throw during any outings scouted during the 2016 season.

Career Notes: Participated in 2013 and 2014 Fall Instructional League.

Summation: Projects as a low-minors contributor, but will be tested by more advanced hitters. Has fringy three-pitch mix. Lacks velocity or stand-out secondary pitch. Bad body with no projection. Will go out every five days and give you five innings against low-minors hitters, but minimal long-term potential.
