Scouting Report: Tall, lanky left-handed starter. Minimal remaining projection. Long levers and front-side deception. Tough on left-handed hitters. Fastball sits 88-90 mph with natural cut. Around the plate, pitches to contact. Was a groundball pitcher early in his career, but groundball rate has dropped significantly and flyball rate almost doubled. Primary secondary pitch is a 76-78 mph curveball. Also will mix in a low-80s slider and a low-80s changeup. Had Tommy John Surgery during his junior year, leading to him spending five seasons at Indiana. Low-bonus senior sign for the Red Sox in the 2016 draft. Has climbed the ladder of the Boston organization relatively quickly.

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