Scouting Report: Ground ball pitcher with a lean, projectable frame. Delivery is smooth, but he can short-arm the ball on occasion, losing his release point. Excellent athlete. Fastball sits 92-95 mph and tops out at 98 mph. Shows plus plus sinking movement, with late life. Fringe-average command. Needs improvement spotting up with offering and consistently staying down in the zone. 82-84 mph changeup grades as plus, misses a lot of bats. Shows depth and bottom-dropping action. Generates consistent arm speed when throwing pitch. Also features a solid-average-to-plus 83-87 mph slider, with tight rotation and late bite. Can throw for a strike and bury out of the strike zone. Creates strong wrist rotation. Late break makes it deceptive from the fastball. Both secondary offerings show the ability to miss bats. Mixes in a loopy 73-77 mph curveball at times. Pitch is more of a show me offering designed to steal a strike when the hitter is looking for something else. Aggressive on the mound.  Projects as a middle-to-back-end starter at the major-league level.
