  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Tall, medium-sized build. o remaining projection.

Mechanics: Clean delivery. Medium leg kick, low 3/4 arm slot.

Fastball: 93-95-mph sinker, relies on the pitch about 40% of the time. Has topped out at 97 mph in the past. Induces groundbals. Mixes in a four-seam fastball at roughly the same velocity.

Changeup: 83-86 mph. Plus pitch, great control of the offering. Utilizes it about one-third of the time.

Slider: 83-88 mph. Below-average pitch.
  Career Notes: Opted to enroll at Oregon rather than signing with Colorado in 2010. Transferred to Orange Coast CC after redshirting his freshman year. Fourth-round pick by the White Sox in 2012. Moved to the bullpen in 2016. Signed with Colorado in 2019 and was almost immediately selected by Seattle in the 2019 Rule 5 Draft. Claimed on waivers by Boston in May 2021. Was called up for a very short cup of coffee in June 2021 before being designated for assignment and subsequently outrighted back to Worcester.

Summation: Up-and-down emergency depth. Middle reliever upside.
