Physical Description: Solid frame. Sturdy lower-half, minimal remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a high-three quarters arm slot from the third base side. Delivery has effort. Long arm action with a stab behind. Quick coming forward. Some deception with his front side.

Fastball: 90-94 mph. Has shown more velocity in the past in a bullpen role. Can dial his velocity up in a starting role when necessary. Pitch shows sink when down in the zone.

Curveball: 73-78 mph. Slurvy two-plane break at higher velocities. More vertical, longer break at lower velocities. Doesn’t consistently finish, but when he does pitch shows depth.

Changeup: 82-84 mph. Throws sparingly, pitch is on the firm side. Lacks feel. Shows fade on occasion.

Career Notes: Served as Kentucky's closer in 2018. Pitched 2 games for Brewster in the Cape Cod League in 2018 after being drafted and before signing with Boston. Participated in 2018 Fall Instructional League.

Summation: Delivery and lack of a third pitch point to a long-term bullpen role. Has the frame to start and has shown ability to hold velocity, but secondary stuff needs refinement. Fastball and curveball combination could play in bullpen role.
