Scouting Report: Tall left-handed starter with athletic body and frame to add more strength. Fastball works 91-93 mph. Shows late, arm-side tail and strong finish. Tends to release fastball early, which causes it to sail up and away from right-handed batters. Needs work staying on top of the ball and locking into release point. Also throws an 81-83 mph slider. Hard, tight break down through the strike zone. Plus potential. Presently in the beginning stages of throwing a changeup. Loose delivery. Creates easy velocity via fluid and balanced mechanics. High ceiling, with the stuff to develop into a middle-of-the rotation starter at big-league level as he matures. Presently in the raw stages. Long lead player.
