Notes from the Field (3.22.17)

Physical Description: Average pitcher’s frame. On the skinny side at present, but doesn’t look to have the frame to support significant added size. Solid athlete.

Mechanics: Max-effort delivery. Starts on the first base side and throws from a high three-quarters arm slot. Starts closed and has a quick, short delivery during which he brings his leg up, crouches some, coiling up then exploding towards the plate. Pitches downhill, quick arm. Gets some deception from effort and quickness of his delivery.

Fastball: 92-94 mph. Tops out at 95 mph. Pitch shows life and late sink. Can miss bats. Potential plus offering.

Slider: 85-87 mph. Short, power slider with sharp horizontal break. Has feel and confidence in pitch. Potential above-average offering.

Changeup:  84-86 mph. Clear third pitch. Will flash late fade on occasion, but inconsistent. Could be effective as a change-of-pace pitch designed to steal a strike. Potential below-average offering.

Career Notes: Flourished in a relief role at Oregon, serving as the closer his junior year.

Summation: Projects as a middle reliever. Potential for two above-average pitches in fastball and slider, both of which show bat-missing ability. Effort in delivery and lack of third pitch limit him to bullpen role, but could move quickly if the organization wanted to push him aggressively.
