  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Average frame with minimal remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. High leg kick with a short arm action coming forward. Has some effort in his delivery.

Fastball: Reportedly sits 91-95 mph and tops out at 97 mph. Strong arm, but has struggled with his fastball command and control.

Slider: 79-83 mph. Vertical shape. Shows some depth and tight rotation when he snaps it off.

Changeup: 81-83 mph. Pitch can be effective against righties when he throws it well.
  Career Notes: Excelled in the Cape Cod League during summer 2019, putting up a 3.16 ERA with 25 strikeouts in 26 innings.

Summation: Has the makings of a three-pitch mix, but needs to improve command and control and refine his secondaries. Strong arm with the type of stuff that could play in a bullpen role if necessary. Mostly pitched in relief in college. Will be developed as a starter initially, but bullpen remains an intriguing fallback option given how velocity plays up in short outings.

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