Physical Description: Filled-out right-hander with an average frame. Has filled out considerably since he signed.

Mechanics: Throws from a high three-quarters arm slot. Pitches exclusively from the stretch. Long arm action with a lot of moving parts. Recoils when falling off the mound. Arm gets out of sync with the rest of his delivery.

Fastball: 94-96 mph. Pitch lacks movement. Command and control are well below-average. Struggles to locate, more of a thrower at this point. Pitch plays below its velocity grade due to lack of movement and command profile. Potential average offering.

Splitter: 85-87 mph. Late drop at times. Inconsistent, but has shown bat-missing ability both in and out of the zone. Potential average offering.

Slider: 84-86 mph. Short, 10-to-4 shape. Lacks depth. Does not show much feel for the pitch. Potential below-average offering.

Career Notes: Participated in the 2018 Fall Instructional League.

Summation: Projects as a low-minors depth arm. Will show interesting raw stuff, but lacks feel on the mound and does not project to develop the command and control necessary to succeed against more advanced hitters.
