Physical Description: Average build with limited physical projection remaining.

Mechanics: Throws from a low three-quarters arm slot. Starts on the third base side of the rubber. Stiff, compact delivery with short arm action. Vertical finish. Average arm speed. Minimal deception.

Fastball: 91-93 mph. Lacks plane. Command and control need improvement.

Slider: 85-87 mph. Short, horizontal break.

Changeup: 80-82 mph. Straight, shows late drop. Tends to slow arm.

Career Notes: Also played outfield in college.

Summation: Minor league reliever profile. Lacks above-average offering, but fastball/slider combination could carry him to the high-minors and allow him to develop into a solid organizational arm.
