Scouting Report: Sturdy right-hander is more of a command and control pitcher. Throws from a arm slot. Solid athlete with some projection in his lower half. Some effort in his delivery incluiding long arm action behind. Fastball works low-90s once he gets loose, and touched 96 mph in college. Pitch is heavy and shows sink and run down in the zone leading to weak contact and groundballs. Showed the ability to locate to both sides of the plate in college. Throws strikes, strong pitchibility. Needs to improve secondaries, which include a slider and changeup. Slider works in the 79-83 mph range. Shows best in the upper velocity range. Sharp with depth and tilt. Loose and on the loopy side in the lower velocity range. 83-84 mph changeup is on the firm side but flashed fade and drop. Tendency to slow his body on the pitch.   Stuff has the potential to play up out of the bullpen.
