  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Athletic frame. Slightly undersized. Sturdy, filled out. Minimal remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. Starts on the first base side and has a high leg kick. Effort in delivery. Explodes forward with a quick arm action. Will add a trunk twist on some occasions to change his timing when coming to the plate.

Fastball: 96-98 mph. Tops out at 100 mph. Velocity increased substantially in pro ball. Pitch shows life up in the zone. On the straight side. Command and control are erratic. Pitch does not miss as many bats as you might expect given its velocity. Potential plus offering.

Splitter: 83-85 mph. Extremely low spin rate. Primary secondary. Confidence and feel in pitch. Pitch shows late, parachuting movement down in the zone. Has potential to miss bats at the highest level. Especially effective against left-handed hitters. Potential plus pitch.

  Slider: 88-91 mph. Short, 10-to-4 break. Pitch shows two-plane shape and tight rotation at its best. Inconsistent feel at the moment. Potential fringe-average offering.

Curveball:
75-79 mph. Did not throw in outings scouted in 2022.

Career Notes:
Participated in the 2021 MLB Draft League. Tied for seventh in NJCAA in strikeouts and ninth in K/9 at Chipola.

Summation:
Potential middle reliever. Ceiling of a late-inning relief arm. On the raw side and needs to improve his command and consistency, but has some of the best raw stuff of any relief arm in the system. Splitter is a potential separator pitch with the ability to miss bats at the highest level. Fastball has good velocity, but is hittable and he will have to show the ability to command it to succeed.
