Scouting Scratch: Fall Instructs Part Two (10.9.14)
Scouting Scratch: Young Arms (4.1.15)

Scouting Report: Undersized lefty with a filled out frame. Throws from the first base side of the rubber. High three-quarters arm slot and stiff delivery with a lot of moving parts. Utilizes a high leg kick, then trunk twist and pause as he rocks back before coming forward. He also has an arm hook behind and lands stiff on his front side. Fastball sits in the low-90s, topping out at 95 mph with life. Also throws a two-seamer at 87-89 mph that shows late, arm-side run in on lefties. Has feel for both his slider and changeup. Slider works in the low-80s with short, late break. Changeup works 79-81 mph; flashes the ability to pull the string on it with late drop. Funk in his delivery and past arm issues likely limits him to a bullpen role, but has a live arm and some deception in his delivery that makes him a potentially intriguing option in that role.
