Scouting Report: Tall right-hander with a funky delivery that has scouts torn on whether he'll end up as a starter or in the bullpen. Extremely challenging for right-handed hitters to hit, as he throws a low-to-mid 90s fastball from a three-quarters arm slot that has reportedly touched as high as 98. The pitch has  good sinking action and plus command, and is his best pitch by far. Also throws a slider and changeup that require further development and don't profile as above average right now.

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