Extra-large pitcher's frame. Looks listed height and weight.
Imposing figure on mound. Will need to watch his conditioning.
No remaining projection.
Throws from a low three-quarters arm slot. Starts on the first
base side of the rubber and does not use a wind-up.
Drop-and-drive motion. Effort in delivery. Shorter arm action,
hides the ball well. Quick, live arm.
94-96 mph. Tops out at 98 mph. Velocity was down some in initial
looks in pro ball, but rebounded in 2022. Pitch shows late
movement. Heavy pitch. Will show bat-missing ability. Erratic
command and control. Potential above-average offering.
Slider: 82-84 mph. Primary secondary pitch.
Will vary shape deliberately at times. Usually shows
frisbee-like 10-to-4 shape, but at other times pitch is more
vertical with depth, and at others is shorter and more
cutter-like. Potential average offering.
Changeup: 88-90. On the firm side and lacks
feel. Well below-average potential.
Was committed to Toledo out of high school, but did not qualify
academically. Instead spent two years at Sinclair Community
College prior to transferring to Miami (Ohio). Named a
Northwoods League All-Star in 2021 after throwing 12 2/3
innings, allowing only four hits while striking out 29.
Participated in the Fall Performance Program in 2021.
Summation: Potential organizational reliever.
Ceiling of an up-and-down reliever. Huge frame with a unique
delivery makes for an uncomfortable at-bat for hitters.
Fastball/slider combination is interesting, but needs to get
more consistent in all areas.
