Scouting Report: Tall right-hander with strong frame. Began using a conventional over-the-top delivery in 2013 after throwing sidearm for the past two seasons. Velocity jumped into the low-90s with the new delivery. Fastball currently sits 89-91 mph and tops out at 93 mph. Uses height to get plane on pitch and induce groundballs. Best secondary offering is a 78-80 mph changeup. Pitch shows drop and is thrown with good arm speed. Also mixes in two breaking balls, a slider and an 11-to-5 curveball. Curveball is currently the better of the two.
