  Scouting Report & Links      
         
  Physical Description: Left-hander with a solid pitcher’s frame. Minimal remaining projection.

Mechanics: Throws from a high three-quarters arm slot. Effort in delivery. High-leg kick. Deceptive arm action, Keeps arms behind before coming forward. Falls off to the glove side.

Fastball: 92-95 mph. Tops out at 97. Live fastball that has shown the ability to miss bats. Ball jumps on hitters. In the early stages of developing command and control. Potential plus pitch.

Slider: 84-87 mph. Vertical 1-to-7 break. Spin rate is consistently 2800-3000 rpm, which is very good. Will flash above-average potential, but is inconsistent at present.

Changeup: 85-87 mph. Pitch shows late drop. Will flash average potential.
  Career Notes: Struggled as a freshman at Tulane, but emerged as the team's closer late in his sophomore season. Pitched in 1 game in the Cape Cod League in 2018. Signed following his sophomore season to an over-slot deal. Participated in Fall Instructional League in 2019 and 2020.

Summation: Potential middle reliever, but has more upside. Needs to improve command and control, as well as consistency from outing to outing. Has shown an intriguing fastball/slider combination. Trackman data is very impressive. Both fastball and breaking ball have above-average spin rates. Upside depends on development of fastball command and improving breaking ball.

Note: This page will be updated with a complete scouting report after the scouting team has seen the player in game action.
