Scouting Report
: Undersized right-hander, throws over-the-top, from the first base side of the rubber. Works only out of the stretch with a medium leg kick and quick delivery. Fastball sits 89-91 mph with natural cut. Throws strikes with pitch and does a good job keeping it down given his lack of height. Curveball 78-80 mph shows 12-6 break and depth through the zone at its best. Changeup 82-84 mph has late drop and has shown the ability to burry the pitch down. Has missed bats with both secondary pitches at the Triple-A level.
