Mechanics: Throws from a three-quarters arm slot. No wind-up. Medium leg kick. Quick arm forward. Some effort in delivery.

Fastball: 89-91 mph. Tops out at 95 mph. Throws a lot of strikes, attacks the zone.

Curveball: 75-80 mph. Primary off-speed pitch. Long, deep, 11-to-5 break. Good spin rate, intriguing offering.

  Slider: 80-82 mph.

Career Notes: Played for Wareham in the 2022 Cape Cod League. Committed to Auburn as a graduate transfer.

Summation: Intriguing fastball/curveball combination. Other pitches lag behind, but is into pitch science and looks to get the most out of his arsenal.
