Scouting Report: Athletic right-hander with a solid pitcher's frame. Fastball sits in the low-90s and tops out at 95 mph. Low-80s slider is best secondary pitch showing above-average to plus potential. Was named first team All-American Conference in 2018 after his junior season. Strikeout rate jumped considerably over college career.  Will likely be tried out as a starter initially, but could end up in the bullpen long-term.

Note: This page will be updated with a complete scouting report after the scouting team has seen the player in person.
