Scouting Report
: Polished left-hander with good pitchability. High 3/4 arm slot. Controlled delivery. Fastball touched mid-90s during sophomore season but velocity is down as a junior. Now sits 88-92 mph but can drop to the mid-80s. Fastball has good cut. Also throws a low-80s circle changeup with diving action, a low-to-mid70s curveball that flashes plus and a mid-80s cutter. Mixes pitches well. Strong defensively with a solid pickoff move. Could move quickly up the organization, especially if velocity returns to previous levels. Command needs refinement.
